4. radiOM.org - A reading by Jan Herman [5.084% Popularity: 0.00000]
A reading by Jan Herman Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA In a program that was recorded on Feb. 13, 1970, Jan Herman reads from the 5th issue of his magazine “San Francisco Earthquake.” The title of this particular issue was “VDRSVP.” The reading includes works by Sinclair Beiles, Carl Solomon, Carl Weissner, Annie Rooney, and Jan Herman, chosen at random, and read here as if they were all part of the same piece. Jan Herman was at the time a publisher of avant-garde literature, who in addition to his magazine, also brought to print various pamphlets by Dick Higgins, Liam O'Gallagher, and William S. Burroughs under the Nova Broadcasting imprint. This particular reading serves as a classic example of the sort of cut-up literary style that was championed by such writers as William S. Burroughs, and which was quite popular in the late 1960s and 1970s. Genre: Literature Subject: Literature, Experimental ; Cut-ups (Literary form) People: Amirkhanian, Ch...

Ode To Gravity: Rigid Foxhole [r i g i d f o x h o l e] Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 61 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) This incurably bizarre program, somewhat reminiscent of John Cage's “Indeterminacy”, begins with "I had a hankering to shoot pins at Bartok." It features a mix of prerecorded electronic and radio drama sound sources mixed with tape delay under readings of experimental texts by Charles Amirkhanian read by Carol Law, Anthony J. Gnazzo and Amirkhanian himself. Performed live in the KPFA studios, the writing is influenced by William S. Burroughs, Clark Coolidge, and Fluxus happenings artists Dick Higgins, Alison Knowles and Allan Kaprow. The program builds to a searing intensity as Gnazzo moves on to recite records for eating, spitting and consumption by "trenchermen" like Bozo Miller of Oakland, California, while dinner is cooked by Law, Gnazzo, Amirkhanian and Richard Friedman, as heard in an ambient kitchen recording in th...

9. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity The Performance Poetry of Toby Lurie [5.067% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: The Performance Poetry of Toby Lurie Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 80 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews Toby Lurie, one of America’s best-known performance poetry artists. Lurie explains the various poetic techniques that he has developed such as his conversation-poems in which more than one voice interact to create a woven tapestry of poetic phrases and overlapping statements. Another type of poetry discussed and performed here are one-word or sound-poems, which attempt to get inside a single word, fully explore its parts and create new meanings by emphasizing or rearranging its syllables. He also talks about his found-poems that are created by cutting up and rearranging found texts, in much the same way that William S. Burroughs has done with prose. Originally a student of music, Lurie has also scored or orchestrated many of his poems, combining many traditional musical forms and elements such as fugues, canons, and pitch with the s...

Ode To Gravity: The Dial-A-Poem Poets Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 123 min Event Type: Spoken Word Program Origin: KPFA Amirkhanian introduces a program of poetry from the Dial-A-Poem exhibits organized by John Giorno at the Museum of Modern Art and other spaces. These poems were originally available to the general public via a special telephone number from the The Architectural League of New York. However due to some of the adult content contained in certain pieces the project was threatened with lawsuit’s from concerned, conservative parents and the telephone number was eventually disconnected. John Giorno then turned to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City as a venue for his collaborative project. However the radical political content of many of the works caused a great deal of concern and despite strong support from the then current director, the show was eventually pulled. The show then moved to a number of different venues and many of the poems have since been published as an audio r...
