Sun Ra

Data de nascimento: 22. Maio 1914
Data de falecimento: 30. Maio 1993

Herman Poole Blount ou Le Sony'r Ra - foi um compositor de jazz, bandleader, pianista, poeta e filósofo conhecido por sua "filosofia cósmica", composições musicais e performances.

Ele ficou conhecido por diversos nomes ao longo de sua carreira, incluindo Le Sonra e Sonny Lee e negou sua conexão com seu nome de nascimento "Esta é uma pessoa imaginária, nunca existiu... Outro nome que eu use do que Ra é um pseudônimo". Ele abandonou seu nome de nascença e adotou o nome e a personalidade de Sun Ra . Alegando ser o "Anjo da Raça" e não da Terra, mas de Saturno, Sun Ra desenvolveu uma personalidade complexa de filosofias "cósmicas" e poesia lírica que o fizeram um pioneiro no afrofuturismo que ele pregava a "consciência" e a paz sobre todos.

Citações Sun Ra

„I probably do what I'm controlled to do. Something … made all this: some Impossibility without a name. That's what the world is controlled by: an Impossibility.“

—  Sun Ra

Interview with Jennifer Rycenga (2 November 1988)
Contexto: I probably do what I'm controlled to do. Something … made all this: some Impossibility without a name. That's what the world is controlled by: an Impossibility. It's controlled by someone they call "God" who never had a beginning and naturally had no end. And in a sense He doesn't exist, because of the standards of reality, because everybody knows something can't just happen — but if there is a God, that's what happened; just happened to be, and without ever having not been — they got to face that.

„Whatever is the imperative need“

—  Sun Ra

"The No Point", p. 256
Contexto: When the person Myth meets the person Reality
The spirit of the impossible-strange appears
In dark disguise
It is always there where nothing inverts itself
and becomes something
Whatever is the imperative need

„I'll build a world of abstract dreams
And wait for you.“

—  Sun Ra

Liner notes to Monorails and Satellites (1968)
Contexto: In some far off place
Many light years in space
I’ll wait for you.
Where human feet have never trod,
Where human eyes have never seen.
I'll build a world of abstract dreams
And wait for you.

„Yes. Out of nowhere they come from the no point.“

—  Sun Ra

"The No Point", p. 256
Contexto: Out of nowhere they come like embers suddenly aflame
With living reach
Spiral infinity
Being. Yes. Out of nowhere they come from the no point.

„Sometimes in the ignorance
I feel the meaning“

—  Sun Ra

"The Differences" (1970), p. 132
Contexto: Sometimes in the ignorance
I feel the meaning
Invincible invisible wisdom,
And I commune with intuitive instinct
With the force that made life be
And since it made life be
It is greater than life
And since it let extinction be
It is greater than extinction.
I commune with feelings more than
prayer

„I'm not into division. I'm into coordination, discipline and tradition.“

—  Sun Ra

As quoted in "Space is still the place" by W. Kim Heron in Metro Times (6 June 2007) http://www.metrotimes.com/editorial/story.asp?id=10582
Contexto: People have a lot more of the unknown than the known in their minds. The unknown is great; it's like the darkness. Nobody made that. It just happens. Light and all that — someone made that; it's written that they did. But nobody made the darkness. My music is about dark tradition. Dark tradition means a lot more about than black tradition. There's a lot of division in what they call black. I'm not into division. I'm into coordination, discipline and tradition.
