Do you like stories that make the hairs stand up at the back of your neck?
Sam Enthoven selects and adapts the finest frightening literature, which is then read in unique surroundings that together create a mysterious and ominous atmosphere. The classic tales are set to a soundscape of Enthoven's uniquely uncanny instrument, the theremin, and some of the best emerging artists from London's experimental music scene. The result is a kind of cinema for the ears and imagination, with storytelling and sound combining to draw you irresistibly in, to reach cold fingers into your mind, to give you SHIVERS.
The readers: RICK KELLUM, LUCY BRADY and BEN SOHAWON.
The accompanists: LAURA SAMPSON on voice and Japanese Noh flute; SAM ENTHOVEN on found sounds and a unique instrument from the dawn of electronic music – the theremin. To hear what previous SHIVERS nights sounded like visit our SoundCloud page
