If you're in the Minneapolis area in April at AWP this will be a wonderful time! I'll be joining David James Miller, E. Tracy Grinnell, and Maryam Parhizkar for a panel titled "Echo locution: Aural / Environment / Body / Poetics." Locating echoes of musical composition in a diverse range of musically-grounded writing practices, this panel explores sites of affinity between poetry, music, somatic, and environmental concerns. Through a survey of writing by Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Akilah Oliver, Joan Retallack, M. NourbeSe Philip, and Leslie Scalapino, panelists articulate how experiments with sound and composition in connection to poetic praxis inform our understanding of ourselves and our environment.
I'll be discussing Luc Ferrari's concept of a "sound newspaper," which he coins in his sonic travelogue Far West News, and how attending to the representational qualities of sound expands notions of representation. You can find listening links and further resources here.
