Day 21: This is the Afterlife
If this is the afterlife, then give me oblivion. It didn’t warrant a huge concert hall experience. A series of ‘readings’, and that was the problem with most of them, they were ‘read’ not ‘spoken’, wasn’t enough to carry the event. With the exceptions of the Geordie, Glaswegian and kid at the start, these were like those awful Radio 4 plays you get in the afternoon, before you reach for the off button. The music was neither complementary nor enough in itself to arouse interest. Eno has been a brilliant curator and director, I’m not so sure about his performances.
