Lecture / Performance by Jaap Blonk
Jaap Blonk talks about his work, placing it in the context of its roots: sound poetry, improvisation and new music.
He presents both historic sound poetry and his own work, in the form of:
snippets of live performance,
projection of texts and scores,
sound examples, including his work with other musicians and / or with electronics,
and video fragments.
At several points question-and-answer sessions can be inserted.
