Rather wonderfully, Alex presents ‘Panel Borders’, the weekly radio show on comics that broadcasts on Resonance 104.4FM London. As such Alex recorded the panel talk, broadcast half of it during a set of shows he was presenting on comics and horror, and saved the other half – ‘my’ half – for his set of shows on comics and music.
The broadcast, which wound up that set of shows, went out yesterday, and it was really great to be able to hear and share the panel talk once again. Don’t worry if you missed it, because it’s being repeat-broadcast this Thursday, May 1st, 11am; and will be available on Alex’s site as a podcast too.
Here's the official info:
"Concluding a month of shows about the connections between comics and music, graphic novelist Ravi Thornton discusses her books The Tale of Brin & Bent and Minno Marylebone and HOAX Psychosis Blues with Alex Fitch in a Q and A recorded at The Lakes International Comic Art Festival.
"Ravi talks about the musical accompaniment for Minno Marylebone, its connection with ballet and new technology, the numerous artists involved with Hoax and how the graphic novel will be accompanied by a performance at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester in June. The episode also features Hannah Berry talking about her contribution to Psychosis Blues and a pair of songs from HOAX My Lonely Heart performed and introduced by Minute Taker (Ben McGarvey)."
