What: an adventure in segéëtude via John Cage’s Lecture on Nothing.
Sound poetry, somewhere between music and poetry framed inside John Cage’s Lecture on nothing a reading of things from concrete poetry to visual poetry to song. A lot of the pieces are from the 60s and 70s, but one from Hugo Ball in 1916 and some contemporary pieces.
Hearing the passing of words of a sentence from person to person, the sounds of a word from person to person, it’s like the cooperation of a madcap, sometimes randomly German, French or birdsong small choir.
