Publicidade

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
Context: 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. Interview with Jennifer Rycenga (2 November 1988)

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

— Sun Ra
Context: 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. Liner notes to Monorails and Satellites (1968)

„Whatever is the imperative need“

— Sun Ra
Context: 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 "The No Point", p. 256

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

— Sun Ra
Context: 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. "The No Point", p. 256

„It takes a motion to notion
and it takes a notion to motion.“

— Sun Ra
Context: It takes a motion to notion and it takes a notion to motion. "Tomorrow is Never" (1972), p. 253

„Sometimes in the ignorance
I feel the meaning“

— Sun Ra
Context: 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 "The Differences" (1970), p. 132

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

— Sun Ra
Context: 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.
