Recorthings 2: Bern Porter & Bob Holman; Aspects of Modern Poetry
Recorded broadcast from radio station WBAI (New York, NY).
Porter talks with Holman about contemporary / experimental poetry including “SCI ART,” Founds, artistic “ownership”/plagiarism and the nature of language itself. Holman serves as interviewer, interlocutor, and devil’s advocate. He (Holman) frequently enters performance mode, overlaying (under-laying?) sounds, vocalizations and wordplay onto Porter’s monologues.
Digital recording of two-sided audio cassette. Running time: approximately 47 minutes.
