Outsider experimental poet, Anne Waldman.

Sound Poetry: The Wages of Syntax – Day 1

Artists: Anne Waldman, with Karen Stackpole, gongs; Clark Coolidge, with Alvin Curran keyboards and electronics; Michael McClure; Aram Saroyan; Jaap Blonk; Enzo Minarelli.

Legendary figures of the Second Generation of New York School Poets Anne Waldman, Clark Coolidge and Aram Saroyan meet the Beast of the San Francisco Beats, Michael McClure.

With cameo previews by Dutch legend Jaap Blonk and Italian poet/publisher Enzo Minarelli. Composer Alvin Curran visits from Rome to sound out syntax confounder Clark Coolidge in the world premiere of Just About Out Of Nowhere. The Buddhist co-founder of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodies Poetics at Naropa, Anne Waldman’s readings are performances that remain indelible in the memory. Aram Saroyan’s one word poems are best exemplified by his piece crickets, here given a special treatment by the poet himself. And Michael McClure unleashes his inner beast to intone his Ghost Tantras.
