Monday, 9th November:
At 4:30pm today Rainbowpeel 475.13 present “As we there are”
The long night of Finnegans Wake is back again. ‘As we there are’ is a musical narration of passages of chapter 2.2 in 4 voices, using instruments, objects, tape recorder and electroacoustic sounds to create a faithfully unfaithful re-narration of the story. In this chapter also known as “night studies”, the central text is constantly interrupted by sides and foot notes, making the reading a disorienting experience.
For the 2020 edition of Radiophrenia Rainbowpeel 475.13 made a re-mix of a recent performance that took place at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven on the birthday of James Joyce. Rainbowpeel 475.13 is a Dutch Belgian band devoted to reading and translating Finnegans Wake into music, consisting of Mariana Lanari and Sjoerd Leijten.
