Recording Notes

Sheila Davies Sumner is a poet and radio artist known for her radio dramas such as “What is the Matter in Amy Glennon?” and “The Opponent’s Queen,” both included in this collection. What is the Matter in Amy Glennon? is an overview of the last 35 years of Davies Sumner’s audio output. Her work combines idiosyncratic texts read by a multitude of singers and voice actors with detailed sound design, found sounds, and the occasional contribution from Fred Frith and Henry Kaiser, as heard in her “avant-garde pop song,” “Static.”
