GLENN GOULD’S THE LATECOMERS
Friday, September 25, 2015.
Notes doors at 7pm, sound at 7:30pm.
presented by Charles Campbell
This month’s Notes will take place at Fresh Oysters Performance Research.
This is part two of Gould’s radio documentary Solitude trilogy. It is about New Foundland’s outports communities and the province’s resettlement program. As in The Idea of North that we heard last month, speech is edited musically.
This makes the experience of the piece almost like listening to music as much as listening to speech. To me, this musicification complicates an already interesting piece.
