For our third track with Eliza and Greg, we delve into a bleaker and more introspective world in Waits's atmospheric poem contemplating seaside suicide. Returning to his attitude to alcohol and growing up, we also take a look at a longer theatrical piece for comparison, via the work of Samuel Beckett.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
The Ocean Doesn't Want Me, Bone Machine, Tom Waits (1992)
A Piece Of Monologue, Sound For Spaces, Scanner/Robin Rimbaud/Samuel Beckett (1979/1998)
Maker of My Sorrow, Footnotes for the Spring, Eliza Rickman (2015)
