PQ on returning to Waywords and Meansigns



Waywords and Meansigns, the project to put James Joyce's Finnegans Wake to music, is putting out a third edition, and PQ is taking part again, joined by members of the Finnegans Wake reading group in Austin, Texas.

Here's a quote from PQ:

"It gives me great satisfaction and hope for humanity to know that so many people all around the world (contributors come from 15 different countries) have been immersing themselves in Joyce's great cosmic love letter, puzzling through the psychedelic dream opera and working to capture its inspired essence through music. The more people spending time reading and enjoying Finnegans Wake on this planet, the better. Its power of upliftment and enlightening humor is nuclear."
