Check Out Rives!

November 17, 2010

Hey all, you should check out Rives. And here’s his incredibly interesting website if you want to poke around, study the way the language changes for a timed performance from the page, see little weird dramas he’s written hidden in the chimes.

Make sure you watch this one below; it’s very visual.

Gwendolyn Brooks Reading

October 4, 2010

I bought a book called Poetry Speaks the other day at Borders, and it had 3 tracks of Gwendolyn Brooks reading. I wish there were more, I like her voice a lot. I have already listened to We Real Cool at least 20 times. I am being hypnotized by it…

Ginsberg Reading

September 15, 2010

UPenn has a lovely page dedicated to a collection of recordings of Ginsberg reading his stuff aloud, as well as singing William Blake’s Songs of Innocence. How do you think we measured up to Ginsberg?
