'Waywords and Meansigns' news



Waywords and Meansigns, the project that has been setting James Joyce's Finnegans Wake to music, has a new website and is launching another recording effort.

Here are details from Derek Pyle:

Waywords and Meansigns just launched our new website. It looks less like 2003 and more like 2013. It is also easier to find specific recordings now, through the Artists page. Let us know what you think!

We are announcing a new call for contributors. Having set James Joyce's Finnegans Wake to music unabridged, we now invite YOU to take a much shorter passage - a page, or a few pages - to set to music. The upcoming winter 2017 release will be the final large group release for Waywords and Meansigns. 

We are interested in recordings from all kinds of people — musicians, artists, poets, scholars, weirdos, passionate Wake-heads, those totally ignorant of the Wake, and anyone generally adventurous. A range of recording styles and methods is no problem.

Please consider sharing this call for contributors on social media, on your website, and with anyone who might be interested.
