Who are we,

if not a combination of
experiences, information,
books we have read,
things imagined?
Each life is
an encyclopedia, a library,
an inventory of objects,
a series of styles, and
everything
can be constantly
reshuffled and reordered
in every
conceivable
way".


Italo Calvino
Six Memos for the Next Millenium


Calvino wrote the libretti for three operas including Luciano Berio's 1984 Un re in ascolto (A King Listens). Now take the path from Beatle to Berio to Boulez.
