Bad Brain Call marks the launch of a new album of pop songs written by Annabel Frearson using only words from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1831), set to music by Joe Howe. Bad Brain Call is the latest in a series of works, including the writing of a new novel, using all and only the words from Shelley's Frankenstein. To date, various extracts have appeared in a magazine, a Slimvolume poster edition (now in the V&A collection), and performed by actors, including at Arnolfini, Bristol and most recently at Haifa Museum of Art, Israel. Bad Brain Call is Frearson's first solo exhibition. Joe Howe is a young composer and sound designer, working under a series of aliases, including most recently, Ben Butler & Mousepad. He's produced 5 albums in the last five years on various EU and US labels, including Joemus, an album written in collaboration with Japan-based Scot, Momus. His most recent work was to compose and arrange music for SWITCH ON: Konferenzoper, a contemporary Opera based on the pioneering work of women in early synthesizer music, in collaboration with director Santiago Blaum.
