Sound Poetry: The Wages of Syntax – Day 5
Artists: Amy X Neuburg; Enzo Minarelli; Mark Applebaum, Charles Amirkhanian & Carol Law
Activism in experimental literature is nothing new to San Francisco, but the 70s revival of sound poetry marked a further development, saluted tonight with performances by Amy X Neuburg, Charles Amirkhanian & Carol Law, and Mark Applebaum. Italian virtuoso performer Enzo Minarelli never sits still. His integration of movement/theater/music/literature ls a living embodiment of the depth of the poetic imagination.
The operatic vocal range of Amy X Neuburg, augmented by her quirky electronic wizardry, spelunk the tortuous rivulets of social commentary. Tonight she gives the world premiere of Say It Like You Mean. Enzo Minarelli performs Affermarsi senza chiedere (Succeed without asking) and other poems from his new series Polypoetry 10. Composer Mark Applebaum gives the ODC’s Meyer Sound system a workout as he unveils his side splitting four-channel fixed media screed Three Unlikely Corporate Sponsorships (Nestlé, General Motors, Halliburton). Charles Amirkhanian and Carol Law revisit their 80s collaborative works of sound poetry with video projections, including the classic History of Collage, alongside a retort to Frank Zappa’s Angeleno-centric jingoism, Hypothetical Moments (in the Intellectual Life of Southern California).
