Ode To Gravity:
Sound Poems of Henri Chopin, Jim Rosenberg, Ira Steingroot

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 68 min

Charles Amirkhanian introduces a program of text-sound compositions or sound poetry. Works by three different artists are highlighted during this program. Perhaps the best known of the three is Henri Chopin, who was an active member of the French avant-garde from at least 1950 until his death in 2008. Chopin was a pioneer in the field of musique concrète and sound poetry being one of the first to recognize the potential for such creations when the first tape recorders became available to consumers. Chopin also published a magazine called OU from his home in Ingatestone, England. Jim Rosenberg is an American poet, mathematician and computer programer who has been creating “non-linear poetic forms” since 1966 when he was only 19 years old. Also featured in this program are the poems of Ira Steingroot.
