Program 568: An Empty Bliss Beyond this World
KALW Broadcast Date: August 9, 2019 | Host: Randall Wong
On this Music From Other Minds, Randall Wong explores the work An Empty Bliss Beyond this World by “the Caretaker.” In the words of the artist, “Famously, people as they got older have started seeing dead people, people from the past, and that’s their reality because the brain’s misfiring. I’m very interested in these kinds of stories. Music’s probably the last thing to go for a lot of people with advanced Alzheimer’s. There are a lot of people who suffer from Alzheimer’s who just hum the same songs over and over again.
