Lost in Track Changes is morphing into book form and we’re celebrating with a salon event on 2nd December at Avid Reader bookstore.
Join Cate Kennedy, Ryan O’Neill, Fiona Capp, Robert Hoge, and Krissy Kneen as they take the personal and intimate craft of memoir and turn it over to the cut-and-paste transformation of remix culture, combined with a hint of old-fashioned parlour games.
Edited by Simon Groth, Lost in Track Changes is a project from if:book Australia featuring the talents of five incredible Australian authors. It begins with a short piece of memoir, a vignette. Each of these pieces is passed onto another author within the group, tasked with transforming the piece into something else. The newly minted remix is passed along again and so on until each of the pieces have passed through all five authors.
Lost in Track Changes follows the journey of each memoir piece through its transformation, with hints of the changes tracked between. But it doesn’t stop there. This is a book in which you are encouraged to take part and make your own changes: highlight, cross out, make additions, even tear whole pages out. Lost in Track Changes is your book. Where we go from here is up to you.
At the Track Changes Salon, we will follow one story’s journey from personal reflection to futuristic dystopia to memorial poem for an imagined hack author.
It’s free to come but bookings are essential.
