#337. Independent sound art, radiophonic projects and other audio non-visual misunderstandings and findings. Hired Horn by Xentos Fray Bentoz.
Hired Horn is a radioplay. Xentos Fray Bentos is a far-away cousin of Harmon Y Phraisier, the immortal radioplay blacksmith, who died in a horrible gardening accident a few years ago (he was a drummer as well).
Hired Horn is a search for old truths, new facts and virtual authenticity. To experience the difficulties of creating fake news, while maintaining a credible accent, when everything is still blinking open and naked in the merciless afternoon sun. What time did that train come again? High noon? Half high, half noon. Half cowboy, half cow.
The Old West is dead, killed off by stupitiy, greed, mass tourism and the lust for cheap mobile phone components. What savage stipulation will arise from the ashes of our once proud and inestimable estate? And what does the future hold for our crippled race beyond staring into an unflattering ugly screen? Hired Horn has a wild snippet of the answers you seek – provided you ride softly that donkey, speak gently to your mule and quit your damned addiction to horseplay.
