‘a day without olives is like a day’, Jack Piers Scott
Published by Corporeal
‘a day without olives is like a day’ is the second book of poetry and prose from Jack Piers Scott and an audio version of the same work with the author in collaboration with the composer Lucy Claire Thornton.
Written and compiled over the past few years, the texts range from descriptions of voyeuristic well-dressed gentlemen, to royalty in the throws of an existential crisis. This mixture of fact and fiction, of overheard conversations and character studies, brings together a vast array of truths, imaginings and absurdities, highlighting the shear multiplicity found within life.
The audio version narrated by Bill Milner (Son of Rambo, Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll), the author and Paul McCleary, continues this broad stylistic approach by combining manipulated audio, field recordings and electro acoustic composition, to produce a wild and meditative world of sound in which the spoken word exist.
Jack Piers Scott graduated from Leeds Metropolitan in 2010 with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art , he continues to write, design and make work.
Lucy Claire Thornton recently completed an MA in Composition for Screen at the Royal College of Music. She is in the middle of composing several arrangements combing string quartets with elements of electronic music.
