Words:
Program No. 13: John Giorno

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 66 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, first broadcast on December 1, 1969, contains five text-sound compositions by John Giorno. Created using multiple tape decks and a MOOG synthesizer these works feature both male and female voices with some minimal electronic manipulation such as reverb and delay. The words themselves are broken up into phrases that are often repeated in full or in part. The subject matter is varied and at times open to interpretation but recurring themes include war and sex.

Note: contains profanity.
