Drum-beats of emancipation

Drum-beats of emancipation

The following clip is about lots of people in Ireland turning up in Dublin to take out law-suits against the banks. I think the object of the exercise is to make the banks confess they are criminals and give back lots of money. Instant success seems unlikely. However, the organisers seem cheerful and up-beat.

At 4.20 minutes, a Cinderella of the instrument world comes in to enhance one’s contemplation of sundry symbols of liberty. I think it is quite tastefully played. myself🙂…

Re: Drum-beats of emancipation

I couldn’t hear any music. Perhaps there is something wrong with the recording. Is there a faucet dripping in the background?

Re: Drum-beats of emancipation

I have heard that "4.20" is sometimes a drug reference. Maybe you have to be high.

Re: Drum-beats of emancipation

I am unfortunately far from high, but I hear a bodhran at 4’20".

Re: Drum-beats of emancipation

Possibly 4.20 is John Cage’s piece 4.33 speeded up by a radical conductor.

I hadn’t thought of that one.

Re: Drum-beats of emancipation

Sounds good. Nice slap and not too much boom.
