Meditations on: the poetic and profane; on silence; death; catastrophe; Cage — and yet more strangeness and beauty from David Ralph Lichtensteiger's travels within the world of 20th C. avant garde music and postmodernism.

Less pithy, less generally relevant than Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy. But, I'm no postmodernist, thank the God in whom I have trouble believing.

I'm in a group at college called the New Music Ensemble, and I really like it, but the pretentiousness does get to me sometimes. I enjoy the free improvisation, but I wish we could leave it at that and ditch the postmodernism angle.

Also, I used Jack Handey for my high school yearbook quote.
