On Bloomsday 2020 we go down to Hades and up to Helio‘s  cattle.

After the halt of the world chapters VI and XIV deal with the death of a society and the birth of art through the medium of language.

In a ghostly procession we follow two protagonists on their journey through a fictious Dublin located on the Danube‘s island, based upon Leopold Bloom‘s ride to the cemetery.
The musical piece „Sir Tristram, violer d ́amores, fr ́over the short sea had passencore rearrived from North America on this side the scraggy isthmus of Europe Minor to wielderfight his penisolate“ (for big drum, chalk, nine rabbit‘s hearts) by composer Georg Nussbaumer reflects on the parameter heart, while Kurt Schwitters „Ursonate“ brings forward the examination of language.
