O.A.I.R. will be performed by Isabelle O’Connell for whom it was written on June 8th in the National Concert Hall, Dublin.
“What barbarians these are who speak of culture, of all these marvelous things, of beauty that will remain forever alien to them as long as they cannot will themselves to practice beauty. All practice and motion are so far from them. They just talk and talk and talk, and for just this reason sink ever deeper into the midnight of unrefinedness, for only action is refined (listen to O.A.I.R.), talk is murky and dark, as unclean as hell itself.”
from “Food for Thought” by Robert Walser
