The Invisible Picture Palace

An evening of found sound presented by Mark Vernon

The Invisible Picture Palace is London’s only record store selling stories and soundscapes instead of albums! Based in the grounds of the Wapping Project, this is a shop like no other – an invisible picture palace of stories held within invisible walls. We also do a nice cup of tea. Visitors can listen to and buy a huge range of recordings from across the last century of radio. But of course, this being an invisible picture palace, the objects are only a part of the story. For the adventurous souls who’ve had a listen to the CDs inside, there’s a world of  experimental audio collage, soundscapes and found sound  to be discovered in the work of Glasgow-based sound artist Mark Vernon. On the 26th July at 7.30pm Mark will join us to talk about his work and, in particular, the world of “Found Sound” – the discarded casettes and home recordings that can be found by anyone in junk shops, car boot sales (and, of course, the invisible picture palace).

Tickets: £4.00 or £5.00 on the door

Where: The Wapping Project Glasshouse
