Chapter Nine addresses the Temple’s experiments in music, including theatrical mystery plays written by Irish literary figure John Varian, and new music invented by Henry Cowell that heralded a new worldwide movement in ultra-modern music. Varian attracted other well-known Irish writers, including Ella Young, who inspired the creation of the Dunites, a colony of artists and thinkers founded by Gavin Arthur, and published a short-lived but important magazine Dune Forum.
