Cumpleaños de Joyce celebrado con una curiosa forma de traducción

Hoy, Día de la Candelaria, tarde de tamales en México, es también aniversario del nacimiento de James Joyce, y el proyecto Waywords and Meansigns, dirigido por Derek Pyle, lo celebra con una segunda edición de la monumental obra colectiva Finnegans Wake Set to Music, una traducción de todo Finnegans Wake a voz y música. Se puede acceder a toda la obra en este enlace. Y aquí las palabras de celebración e invitación de Derek Pyle:

Dear Friends of the Wake,

James Joyce’s birthday is coming up on 2 February and we have big news.

The second edition of Waywords and Meansigns premieres next week!

We set Finnegans Wake to music unabridged once already last spring, and now we’ve done it again. With a new cast of all-star readers, musicians, and artists.

Our contributors poured so much dedication, creativity, and passion into this project. We are really excited to share it with the world.
