Nothing other than silence / Jack Symonds ; text by Louis Garrick, after the Epic of Gilgamesh.
by Jack Symonds (2021)
An adaptation of lines from 'The Epic of Gilgamesh'; the oracle Utanapishti tells Gilgamesh of the great flood, a cataclysm engulfing the whole world - how they survived, and what the world looked like in the aftermath. Three linked songs chart this fragment of a foundational myth.
