At 4pm today, musician, songwriter and novelist, Stuart David presents ‘Minimalist Beats’ – a collage of beat poetry performances by Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Charles Bukowski and Bob Dylan mashed up with music by Minimalist composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich. It shouldn’t work but for some reason it just does. And it’s addictive.
Stuart David co-founded the band Belle and Sebastian and was a member from 1996–2000, and then went on to front Looper (1998–present). He is the author of the novels Nalda Said and The Peacock Manifesto, published by I.M.P. Fiction in 1999 and 2001. His third novel, A Peacock’s Tale was published by Barcelona Review in 2011.
