Writer Mary Cappello presented a multi-modal reading drawn from her new writing on “mood”—a suite of lyric essays and experimental prose that allows for mood’s mercurial nature, gives free play to mood’s pre-conscious origins, and follows the lead of its kinship with “the elements.” With special emphasis on sonic phenomena, she tests suppositions that we may be entering a moodless age. She discusses her interest in creating collaboratively constructed and conceived “mood rooms” as alternative performance and meeting places.
