The Music of the Cosmos - Carole Bulewski
The Music of the Cosmos – Book Launch
8th April 7pm at The Others, Stoke Newington
A book launch party, with live painting by London artist Alban Low and live music composed by London-based Glaswegian musician Fraser Parry (Bread & Circus, Tatcho Drom, Firefay). The event will also include reading of excerpts from the novel, book signing, (short) talks from the author Carole Bulewski, psychedelic original visuals, and DJ sets (expect some Canterbury scene music and general Sixties extravaganza).
About the novel
“We must discover the Music of the Cosmos.”
With these words, visionary, depraved and intensely artistic Gaius picks the curiosity of Sam and his friends, young lads from Kent who have come to Swinging Sixties London in search of musical success. To further their quest for the otherworldly Music of the Cosmos, the boys leave London for Paris, and experiment with the help of psychotropic drugs designed by a mysterious patron whom only Gaius has ever met. While travelling through rural France to escape the madness of the May 1968 revolution, events take a turn for the tragic – and the supernatural.
The Music of the Cosmos, Carole Bulewski’s debut novel in the English language, is a supernatural delight, with thought-provoking imagery that will paint glorious psychedelic images in your mind.
The Music of the Cosmos will play on in your head long after you’ve finished reading it.
