I showed how the music of John Zorn can be used as a lens to understand different postmodern theories, including Baudrillard's Game Theory, Jameson's Theory of the Pastiche and Gergen's Saturated Society theory, multi-media theories, and other things I can't quite remember right now.
I was 19 years old. It was fun, but I couldn't really appreciate it. I was filled with self-loathing, as usual. I thought I was a failure, for some reason. I'm not sure why. I got a lot of praise.
