Esther Burns – The Genius Of The Crowd
Limited edition run of 100 copies in postcard packaging…
« There is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average
human being to supply any given army on any given day
and the best at murder are those who preach against it
and the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace… »
Opposed by the great Pope of liberalism Milton Friedman, “The genius of the crowd”, a poem by Charles Bukowski reminds us to be vigilant against the speech from the dominant ideology.
The text read by Bukowski is separated into three parts set to music by Esther Burns.
The electronics are crossed guitars, old keyboards, piano and other mechanical sounds…
Incredibly topicality, the text and its author appear as the flower of the cover: worn and faded, but beautiful, powerful and timeless.
