These 3 writers all had a profound effect on my life during different periods. Each is a radical in his own way and all three are now dead but their writing never seems anything but fitting to contemporary situations. All three had birthdays around mid-November and I decided to do a show on their texts/visions and music that was inspired by or might as well be by them. That words could have an effect using levity, using simple/elegant sentences – this is what they taught me. All 3 have a unique and joyously deconstructive voice, tearing apart basic accepted hypocrisies and sophistries in our world that helps point to the basic dysfunctional state of the norm.
