Triptych Inspired by the Oresteia of Aeschylus 1981 Oil on canvas

In other Xenakis news CalArts is presenting “Oresteia” at new and famous The Wild Beast on Sunday, Nov 7 at 4 pm. If you’d like to bone up on this classic triptych of plays, Anne Carson’s perfect translation is available from Amazon for as little at $17.95. On the other hand, most books are available at the LA Public Library for free.

Trying a second Bacon image. This one has better (brighter) color but perhaps bright wasn't Bacon's intent. Hmm. I guess I go with both. Link is to YouTube channel of a new hero Pelo del Perro, with the entire Xenakis opera in five parts, beginning with "Oresteia I (Agamemnon)" Without my earbuds I can't listen, so I'm trusting fate. I'll catch up later at home. Listen.
