2010 was the year I read James Joyce’s Finnegans
Wake. Questions about its ‘unreadability’ aside, I
discovered a strange rhythm and musicality in the text.
I found that this along with its sheer otherworldliness
began to influence the way I thought (not as in
‘thought about things’, but the mechanics of thinking).
And in particular, the way I listened. The book is
mysterious and unknowable, so it seemed impossible to
articulate its meaning and/or value by conventional
methods. This CD is an attempt to represent what
Finnegans Wake means to me through sound rather
than words.
