At Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, Beck is slated to share a bill with Cage the Elephant, the alt-rock group from Kentucky, as part of a co-headlining tour. Sponsored by the Earle Brown Music Foundation, the Time:Spans festival, an increasingly vital exploration of experimental music in the summer New York scene, presents its fifth iteration in the coming weeks. Through Feb. Combine the elegant restraint of a 16th-century Persian miniature with the baroque and boundless imagination of the Hindu epics and you get the jewel-box glories of the Indian court painting, a form which flourished in multiple schools and little courts from the s into the British Raj.
Portraits of Mughal rulers, or of nobles cavorting, can be lovely.
This grand narrative background lends breathtaking excitement even to an image of the blue-skinned king relaxing in a forest glade. Mads Mikkelsen played the role first. Why are we like that? Solipsists, each and every last one of us! Now after two months here I appreciate the feeling of being both in the culo al mundo but somehow also at a new mid-point.
New views of old stars! As if perfectly horizontal lines explained the world.
Oh, the convenience of an axis. The plot of space. The sensational stuff of dreamers and novelists! It had required time and more time to transform transplanted Europeans into Argentineans. Time for the conquest of new spaces. Time for the absorption of new star systems. Time for the birth of a new language and a new world vision. Time and space for a new world center. National identity! The vanity of nationhood. Magic realism! Imagining Buenos Aires!
Imagining itself as a city of the northern hemisphere plopped down in the south by playful gods. Psychogeography of walkers was nothing new for him, he mused, crossing Avenida Santa Fe. It had always been his system.
See a Problem?
Beautiful Matilda! Traitorous Matilda! Circular walking, along charted lines, with the goal of arriving back at the starting point. Walking the structure of a novel, he thought. Select a starting point and walk the lines and the circle the chosen area forms. The length of Avenida Callao, then another line to Puerto Madero, and back to the foot at the opposite end of Callao. The reward was the conquered territory within the circle.

Captured space and time. A new center. A new axis. A new form of representation … and perhaps the new novel. And all now his. The thrall of a new world giving him a second chance. How could she guess that my Danteism is a mirrored simulacrum of the other me, a decoy, a diversion from me? I, too, a simulacrum of a mad idea of a potential creation.
A simulacrum … or another nightmare! The simulacrum, with all the ugliness and imperfections and betrayals it implies. Two images: one in the life of Dante and urban circles; the other in the creative chaos of myself tottering on the edge. The abyss opened before him; he grappled with a dark hold on the ledge; he opened his eyes and in the dark saw that the hold was Matilda Why not write it, then?
Tickets more expensive than La Scala. Everyone in evening dress. A languid summer evening. Later, out to the Palermo parks. A copy of Europe? Not exactly. Rather a negative of Europe, the dream of Europe … dreamed by nostalgic immigrants. Their illusions, their fantasy, phantasmagoric, still uncertain of their own image, and yet, yet, at the same time inimitable. But what does Dante have to do with it, he asked himself again? The same man, tall thin young, cracked the door and as each time said the museum was closed. Come back Jueves! Would he never see the museum? Security has its drawbacks.
All that history down in the museum. Three hundred thousand Argentine Jews, the sixth Jewish population in the world! No place for Dante and his Tuscan language! South of south, south of everything, bottom of the Southern Hemisphere, he thought, surrendering to instinct and making up his own verses. Calles y calles, avenidas y avenidas. Tell me where the center lies. We never know when it happens. Walking backwards across the fields we see it backwards.
Like love after love.
No thing compares with the roar,. With the life far down there,. Of torrid nights to come. Ahead … or behind. The meeting was for the crazy hour of 10 p.
Or the Rome Parliament. In a ninth floor conference room Stars and constellations high in the sky. Emergardo was fearful of entering Palacio Barolo. What if she were there with one of the Centaurs?
