"A Gong(66-06) For Mr Beckett (06-06)" by Danny Mc Carthy
The only known recording of Samuel Beckett playing a musical instrument is on a recording entitled “MacGowran Speaking Beckett”on the Claddagh Records label recorded in 1966. On this record Jack MacGowran reads from various Beckett texts including Malone Dies, Watt, Molloy, Endgame etc..The readings are separated by the sound of a gong played by Samuel Beckett. Using this as a basic source of inspiration the artist creates an installation using gong and other sounds associated with Beckett to commemorate the centenary of Beckett’s birth.
