Swiss critic, scholar and lecturer Christian Hänggi will present at Eyedrum, 88 Forsyth Street, Atlanta, GA 30303, a partially improvised musical lecture on the matter of music, in the novels of Thomas Pynchon.

Pynchon is renowned for output including V (1963), Gravity's Rainbow (1973), Mason & Dixon (1997), and Bleeding Edge (2013), among many others. For decades he has now interleaved within his literary output, the countercultural sounds of America's musical vernacular. Reporting and even reworking the in-theory-well-known lyrics of broadcast radio, with unannounced and biting subterfuge, Pynchon's characters perform a sort of ongoing remix of the house band in our head -- guitar riffs alternately errant, flat, or distinctive.

Christian Hänggi, the presenter, is a doctoral candidate in Zurich, and himself lightly infamous for his attentive accounting of the late Karlheinz Stockhausen, very specifically on the question of the 9/11 attacks in the US. Stockhausen, the great electronic composer, had described these attacks in Germany -- in public and to great public distress -- as a manner of gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art.

Hänggi has now agreed to present his up-to-the-minute work on the topic of Pynchon: one of America's most resiliently disillusioned authors.

The lecture with its musical accompaniment, is properly entitled

"The Harmonica, the Kazoo, and the Saxophone: Pynchon’s Lessons in Organology."
