Sound Poetry Performance
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2012
5:30PM - 6:30PM
Jason Conger / The Four Hoarse Men / Interrupture / Kjell Hansen
Jason Conger presents a night of sound poems, simultaneous poems, and polyvocal compositions. Readers explore the art of sound poetry as practiced by historical avant-gardes such as the futurist and dada movements, for whom the form represented a convergence of literary and musical composition in which meaning is subservient to the materiality of language. Performances explore the sonic, acoustic, and non-semantic potentials of individual and group readings. Expect growls, groans and guffaws.
Featuring Interrupture, Four Hoarse Men, and a vocal rendering of Kjell Hansen’s installation art.
