Very intrigued by this event. I gave a talk on Jandek in the music

resistance to the music on the part of the audience (I played them 'I Shot
Myself' from *Khartoum*), but I did find an ally in one of the performers in
the department prior to the talk.

I also know that a lecturer in the Philosophy department at University
College Cork, Ireland played several tracks by Jandek as part of a third
year course on Theories of Interpretation ('The Park' from Ruins of
Adventure was featured prominently). Any other accounts of Jandek in
