Argues that sound can manifest divine generosity.
1. Introduction 2. A Silent Prayer 3. Theological Stocktaking with Pierre Boulez 4. The Epistle of 4'33" 5. The Ubiquity of Music and Sacramental Life 6. The Spook of Modern Technology and the Generosity of Music 7. Conclusion
What if sounds everywhere lavish divine generosity? Merging insights from Jean-Luc Marion with musical ingenuity from Pierre Boulez and John Cage's 4'33 ", Gerald C. Liu blends the phenomenological, theological, and musical to formulate a hypothesis that in all places, soundscapes instantiate divine giving without boundary. He aims to widen apprehension of holiness in the world, and privileges the ubiquity of sound as a limitless and easily accessible portal for discovering the inexhaustible magnitude of divine giving.
