The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains

The Truth is A Cave In the Black Mountains is a story by Neil Gaiman, author of novels for children and adults as well as writer of the DC Comic series, Sandman. The Truth is A Cave In the Black Mountains has been published, with illustrations by Eddie Campbell (see Neil Gaiman's website), but Gaiman has brought the work to life in a multi-media event which is coming to the Barbican on 4-5 July. The event is also at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh on 6 July.

Created originally in 2010 for the Sydney Opera House, the event combines Gaiman's reading of the story with illustrations from Eddie Campbell (best known for the graphic novel collaboration with Alan Moore From Hell), and music provided by FourPlay String Quartet. The result, we are promised, is a revolutionary new concept in multi-media story telling.

FourPlay String Quartet is an Australian group formed from the Australian Youth Orchestra and inspired by the Kronos, Balanescu and Brodsky Quartets’ blurring of the boundaries between classical and rock music. The group uses two violas rather than two violins, to much a richer, thicker sound.
