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.
