All the Names Given as it’s meant to be heard, narrated by Raymond Antrobus

Throughout, the audiobook is punctuated with [Caption Poems] partially inspired by deaf sound artist Christine Sun Kim, which attempt to fill in the silences and transitions between the poems, as well as moments inside and outside of them. Direct, open, formally sophisticated, All the Names Given breaks new ground both in form and content: the result is a timely, humane and tender book from one of the most important young poets of his generation.

Interludes is a collaboration between Shade Podcast and Axel Kacoutié featuring six contemporary artists: Amy Sherald, Ming Smith, Phoebe Boswell, Rahima Gambo, Nnena Kalu and Cassi Namoda.

Framed by the question “What does healing sound like?”, these podcasts offer a visceral connection with the artists’ work. In each episode we weave the artists’ reflections through Axel’s original soundscapes, as a collaborative exploration of their creative experience.

Interludes opens an alternative space. The aim is to soften our tendency to intellectualise artwork, and instead create a sonic texture that is more intimate in its connection with the artist.

that induce a meditation
from her touch, ah! from her vivifying touch upon my skin.”
