The idea was a simple enough question. How many ways are there to read James Joyce's great and bizarre novel Finnegans Wake?

Seventeen different musicians from all around the world, each assigned to render a chapter aurally. The only requirements: the chapter's words must be audible, unabridged, and more or less in their original order.

To the wonderful world of Finnegans Wake readers, newcomers and devoted followers alike: Here Comes Everybody

To celebrate the anniversary of the Wake's publication (4 May 1939), Soundart Radio will broadcast the entire second edition of Waywords and Meansigns. 3 May through 4 May

Various regional events will also take place during the broadcast. There will be a 30-hour "listening party" in western Massachusetts, USA, as well as events in Australia and the Totnes area, UK. We invite you to host an event in your region, to stream the audio for an hour or the whole thirty hours! Check out our Facebook event for more information, or contact
The broadcast begins on 3rd May at 3PM and runs continuously until 4th May at 9PM. Times, unless otherwise noted, are British Summer Time (BST) aka UTC +1.
