Not that long ago we had a government which refused to listen to the people. Now we are unsure of what is heard by the govt and what isn't. Something coherent has been lost. The date of this show, April 20, is the anniversary of so many "issues." Hitler's birthday, the anniversary of Waco and Oklahoma City and Columbine. (It's also my dad's birthday.) So much of modern experience is beyond any kind of ordinary comprehension, because it is beyond our senses and systems. What it does is use examples of favorite modernist musics (mostly ambient instrumentals but also containing songs) in order to call for revolution. Yes, a call for blood. Listen close or you'll miss it. Each musical piece is a "text" to add to all the other texts.
