A need for the Ridiculous and a craving for Beauty

A Prudent Fearlessness and eccentric Modesty are much appreciated
Decadent Sobriety is a must!
We’ll need Adherents of the Cacophony of Silence

And Worshippers of the Inaudible Big Bang
Lyrical Beyoncés and Trash Can Opera Singers
Einsturzende Barokleute und Minimalistische Sirenen
Whispering Songwriters and Bulging Bombardon
Musical Kittens and Industrial Ravens

Worshipped Musicians and Absolute Beginners
Creative Note Knitters and Skilled Intensive Care Players
And last but not least
Fun Loving Criminals and Mischievous Maidens…
