A Brief Experimental Excerpt of Sound Poetry and Orchestral Music

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 8 min
Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA

A collage piece of sdrawcab sound poetry, rooster crows, miscellaneous ambient sounds and classical music by Charles Amirkhanian, probably for a broadcast ca. 1971. This brief experimental work begins with a recording of a man talking, played backwards and mixed with an occasional rooster crowing. This is followed by what appears to be a short sound poem, or an excerpt of one, as read, and possibly composed, by Charles Amirkhanian. Next heard is an excerpt of an unidentified symphonic work, and the program then concludes with a rather ambiguous apology by Amirkhanian for what is an abrupt termination of the recording due to someone “stepping on the tape recorder.”
