Books For Earworms

In collabration with Zabriski Bookshop for Culture and Nature

Books for Earworms is a two-night concert series pairing books with electronic music composers at Zabriskie Buchladen. Composers will present site-specific solo performances that create an immersive experience within the context of the bookshop. The idea for this concept is inspired and plays on the notion of food and wine pairing. In this case, composers select or ‘pair’ themselves with a book from the specialist bookshop.The title ‘Books for Earworms’ refers to the expression earworm – when a tune that is no longer heard is continually repeated in a person’s mind also known as (IMI) Involuntary Musical Imagery.
