Music for Wilson fans

Robert Anton Wilson fans are likely to also be fans of James Joyce, or at least realize that RAW was deeply influenced by Joyce's writings.

So I thought I would share a discovery I made recently -- a composition by modern American composer Robert Erickson that sets a text from Finnegan's Wake to music. The track is called "End of the Mime" and it can be downloaded here. (The whole album is worth downloading. I particularly like the first track, "Night Music.")

(Via the Avant Garde Project.)

John Cage also composed a piece based on Finnegans Wake.
