Sound poetry is a primarily early 20th century invention merging new typographic potentials with performative oral expression in the form of poetic phonemes and letter sounds. This ultimately gave way to the creation of visual and concrete poetry. The evening will promote both historical scores as well as exploring new possibilities. This event intends to support and present sound poetry from current practitioners living in the northwest.
