What is Field? Michael Pisaro and the Poetics of Geo-sound

Speaker: Michael Pisaro
Respondents: Paul Bavister, Drew Milne, Carol Watts

Monday 12 November 2012, Centre for Creative Collaboration, 7pm

Presented by the Contemporary Poetics Research Centre, Royal Holloway University of London

This event is an exploration of the intersection of composition, text and field recording. American composer Michael Pisaro, a member of the Wandelweiser collective, will talk about his recent CDs July Mountain (the score of which develops from a poem by Wallace Stevens) and Crosshatches, a collaboration with Japanese sound artist Toshiya Tsunoda. A panel of respondents will comment on the work presented: architect Paul Bavister (UCL/ Bartlett) and poet-critics Carol Watts (Birkbeck) and Drew Milne (Cambridge).

Transcripts of parts of this event are now available in issue 5 of the journal Wolf Notes.
