this is the door to the house where Sun Ra lived from 1968–1993 @ 5626 Morton Street in Germantown, Philadelphia, PA. I saw a 16mm screening of Robert Mugge’s 1980 film A Joyful Noise (so titled because, when neighbors complained about the loud music, Sun Ra’s response was that they were not making music - they were making joyful noise) at International House on Wednesday & realized I’m currently staying about 6 blocks away - so I had to take a walk this morning & check it out! Can’t find the Pharaoh’s Den corner store though.



"The chaos on this planet is due to the music that musicians are playing, that they are forced to play by some who just think of money and don’t realize that music is a spiritual language and it represents the people of earth. [….] Music is a universal language, and what you call musicians to play, it’s what goes to the creator as your personal ambassador and your personal nemesis."



You can watch A Joyful Noise in full on Vimeo.
