My opening act was, of course, to ‘In Dreams’ by Roy Orbison, and to open the second half I performed a version of ‘Working For The Man’, the original version of which is by PJ Harvey, and appears on her album To Bring You My Love.
Someone enquired as to the quote I used as part of Marcus Reeves’ introduction, it was thus [capitalisations are mine]:
“The more one studies these things, the more one realizes that SOUND is the creative principle. It must be regarded as primordial. No single phenomenal category can be claimed as the aboriginal principle. We cannot say, in the beginning was NUMBER, or in the beginning was SYMMETRY… They are not themselves the creative power. This power is inherent in tone, in SOUND.”
– Dr. Hans Jenny (1904-1972). Swiss physician, artist, and natural scientist.
