Ecosocialist Horizons Hour: February 6th, 2013
John Halle ~
This week our guest in the studio is John Halle, composer, music theoretician at the Bard College Conservatory, and former Alderman of New Haven for the Green Party. It is the first of our programs to consider music as the “horizon” of ecosocialist inquiry: music, more than any other art form capable of releasing the deepest and most revolutionary impulses, yet remaining largely trapped within the cage of capitalist alienation. We are honored to play the premiere of one of Halle’s works–”Full Spectrum Dominance”–a rendition and deconstruction of the Cheney Doctrine which the USA employed in its wars of, and against, Terror.
