Sarah Angliss brings more steampunk strangeness to London next month with Talking Canaries & The Voices Of The Dead, a talk and demonstration at the Last Tuesday Society.

In the nineteenth century, the audio experience changed forever with the invention of the Edison Standard Phonograph which, in the words of a contemporary Scientific American journalist, allowed for the "startling possibility of the dead being reheard".   As well as using one of the original phonographs, Ms Angliss will be delving into 18th century audio recording and conjuring up her own music with a theremin and telling how the first "electric servants" were used for paranormal investigation (a Victorian-themed X-Files anyone?).

It sounds creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky and we expect nothing less from the woman who, with her band Spacedog and their homemade musical robots, did a spectacular job of making our neck hair stand on end in August.

Talking Canaries & The Voices Of The Dead will be on December 10 at the Last Tuesday Society's venue Viktor Wynd's Academy of Domestic Science on Mare Street.  See The Last Tuesday Society for more information and tickets.
