TINY RUINS COLLABORATES WITH AUTHOR TO TRANSLATE STORIES INTO SONGS

News

The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.


Hollie Fullbrook, known to Flying Nun fans as Tiny Ruins, is teaming up with the author of Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell, for a unique event at Word Christchurch this August. The two will be posing the question of each other's work: "if I were a story and you were a song..." and vice versa. Mitchell will be asking of Fullbrook's songs: 'If this song was a story, what would it be about?' and Fullbrook of Mitchell's stories: 'If you were a song, how would you sound?'

Mitchell has taken five of Tiny Ruins' best-loved songs and turned them into a narrative of interconnected stories - essentially a novel in miniature. At the same time, Fullbrook has responded to three of Mitchell's short stories that have never been published. The stories span from the past into the future, much as Cloud Atlas did. This certainly will be a unique show that you will have to attend to experience.

As Hollie Fullbrook mentions above, you can listen to author David Mitchell talk about the show (and his new documentary which offers a window into non-verbal autism) with Kim Hill on RNZ here. Tickets can be bought here from Word Christchurch.

Also elsewhere on flyingnun.co.nz: Claire Mabey conducted a forensic reading into Tiny Ruins' song School of Design, which you can read here. And you can pre-order the tenth anniversary copy of Tiny Ruins' debut album Some Were Meant For Sea, here.
