it’s hilarious to call “everything must go” a broadway musical – probably the critical and ironic perspective of this work have a great start from there. i didn’t completely understand what was happening, but i think that was part of the point. it was difficult to enjoy the texts or sounds, as there were a lot of interruptions, questions asked, unfinished sentences, unintelligible sections, nonsensical ideas, extreme positions i don’t really share… however i could tell there was something important going on, as i could get and perceive many bits and pieces, along with some kind of energy filling the space… i can say for sure there were ideas about subverting everything we know for granted, delivered therefore in a coherent way (i wish i could have a more complete version of them: i wanted to grasp the concepts but they flew away too fast, and even with the written text i would want to know more about the thoughts behind).

it is interesting to perceive the reuse of materials and strategies of john cage (getting meta again, under the same tradition of that master), and it is intriguing how it all fits together with the current environmental and social concerns. is this kind of poetry and music the right kind of answer? not much appears to have happened with these methods… maybe more of us would need to try them?

i don’t know, but it is inspiring to see young people like sejo doing these kind of questions…

in any case, after this experience, and after reading and talking more about it, i have decided the following: i’ll leave my job in the oil industry, and i will become a poet…
