ROBERT WYATT SINGS EDWARD GOREY

Here’s another delightful fan-made video syncing print to music via Michael Mantler’s wonderful 1976 LP The Hapless Child and Other Inscrutable Stories. It’s a collection of delightful and dark children’s verse by Edward Gorey set to music by a stellar cast including WyattCarla BleyJack Dejohnette and Terje Rypdal. I’m pretty sure I could listen to Robert Wyatt sing a shopping list and find it to be genius but this is a real treat, a match made in heaven.
