Words:
Program No. 6: John Payne

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 56 min
Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA

One in a series of programs produced by Clark Coolidge that feature the works of late 20th century poets, sound poets, and authors. This recording, broadcast on October 6, 1969, features a number of text-sound compositions by John Payne. The first piece uses short stories by John Cage that are then cut up and rearranged and mixed with other texts. The other pieces are similar in construction and many of the texts sound as if they came from scientific textbooks, electronic music manuals, and musical reviews of classical performances. Although five untitled pieces have been listed it is uncertain as to whether they are properly segmented as many of the pieces seem to segue into each other without much of a pause. However such indeterminacy seems unimportant when enjoying this hour long program of uninterrupted verbal manipulations.
