John Cage's Roaratorio, An Irish Circus on Finnegans Wake at Happy Days Enniskillen International Beckett Festival 2014

By Published: | 2,463 views
Forty minutes went by in a flash, but for that time Cage's music, voice and taped sounds transported those in the Marble Arch Caves to Joyce's pre-war Dublin. The cyclical, fragmentary sounds—undulating in density—evoked a dreamlike sensation of walking around and around in circles.

Chaotic yet strangely meditative, nostalgic and poetic, Cage's intoxicating, quasi psychedelic soundscape cast a lasting spell deep beneath the rolling hills of Fermanagh, in Beckett land.
