“You are the music while the music lasts.” For the 75th Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined in Berlin by pianist and Korean-American mutt SooJin Anjou to discuss the need for contradiction and art that contains the world. No small ambition. This will be the last of these Second-Hand Book Factories for a while so, in Groucho’s words, please hug yourselves for me.
Noise warning: This episode was recorded in a very echoey room. There is also some intermittent drilling in the background between 16:20 and 16:40.
On the question of classical music on the podcast, a clarification: of course, while editing this episode, Charles Adrian remembered that he played some Schubert for Ted Schmitz as part of the 30th Page One, which you can listen to here.
Filippo Andreatta, mentioned here, is featured in Page One 51.
This episode features a jingle written for the podcast by the band Friends Of Friends; you can find some of their music here.
