Four Text-Sound Pieces by Larry Wendt

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 39 min
Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA

Four text-sound pieces by Larry Wendt, recorded in San Jose in 1978 and released on cassette through his own Frog Hollow label. Born in Napa, California, in 1946, Wendt began experimenting with text-sound composition and musique concrète in the 1970s, and has been a frequent participant and organizer of sound poetry and electronic music festivals and events ever since. He has also written extensively about avant-garde and experimental art including several seminal books on sound poetry written in collaboration with Stephen Ruppenthal. In this program you will hear four compositions featuring a mix of spoken word fragments, ambient sounds, and processed electronic noise. Although many of these works contain a suggestion of narrative, they are best enjoyed as an immersive audio environment rather than a clearly defined story.
