reading of THE INCANDESCENT ALPHABET invites the listener to enter
into a space that assembles the unknown. Musical scores and alphabets
wait in jars of water, back lit, on a quiet table. Nora’s
voice evokes her new country and her mother country. She returns
to a Dublin that is oddly unchanged yet radically changed. Sentences
break into unexpected details of perception.
Brief moments of dislocation slowly gather. Entering solitude and
absence, two voices speak intimately, beyond Nora. A script dissolves
in jars of water, leaving the alphabet, the music, the darkness.
