The recording with the BLUE SHROUD BAND of Barry Guy’s composition “all this this here” is now available here!
From the liner notes by Barry Guy :
The title of this new work for the Blue Shroud Band comes from Samuel Beckett’s “what is the word“, his last poem and an elegiac meditation on language.
Additionally to “what is the word”, I have also used one of Beckett’s late poems “Brief Dream” which refers to the theme of transiting life and the acceptance of ending – “go end there / one fine day” and Barra Ó Seaghdha’s (Irish writer and poet) evocative poem “Waiting” .
Two 18th century Edo Haiku complete the texts featured in this piece that collectively focus on life in transit.
