Below is an explanation by the author.

"Every poet needs a theory," according to Italian polypoetry pioneer Enzo Minarelli. doing.
Nothing less than the avant-garde's failure to self-actualize, "Sound Poetry By Other Means" utilizes the strategy of mid-20th-century audio poetry as a vehicle for this virtual historical tour.Various flaws, missteps, gear failures, and an overall atmosphere of "why?" It reinforces the pre-horse-going nature of producing incompetent art.The message is by no means optimistic, but it is delivered in a matter-of-fact, sometimes even joyous, tone appropriate to the paradox of declasse's post-"end of history" paradox.

It's meant to be taken as a whole, but audiences averse to such a pedantic format will find plenty of meat in the sheer sonic alienation this disc offers. "

Adhuman:

"Thomas DeAngelo, known otherwise as TD or for his participation in Melkings, Zwangsbeglucktertum, Association Copy as well as his sadly departed Crisis of Taste label/mailorder, returns following his well-received Nothing New Under the Sun cassette (Gift of Music, 2022 ). From a distinctly leftfield position relative to the gnarled, textural tape noise works of this last output, DeAngelo in Voiceprints… offers an obscure, bloody-minded take on Sound Poetry and voice-based sound art over the course of this full length CD album."

Artist statement by Thomas DeAngelo:

'According to Enzo Minarelli, the Italian pioneer of Polypoetry, "every poet needs a theory." On this new Gesamtkunstwerk, “Voiceprints & Aircuts”, the theory proffered is that of "Sound Poetry By Other(s) Means".

With pince-nez tilted towards nothing less than the failure of the Avant Garde to realize itself, "Sound Poetry By Other Means" utilizes the strategies of circa-mid 20th century audio poems as a vehicle for this virtual history tour. missteps, gear fuck ups and general atmosphere of "Why?" all bleed into the smudged margins to reinforce the cart-before-horse nature of producing art indifferent to, nay, incapable of commodification within a cratering Marketplace of Ideas. While the message is by no means optimistic it is voiced in an unaffected, at times even joyous register befitting the paradox of post-End of History déclassé unfreedom.

Although intended to be taken as a whole, audience members antagonistic to such prescriptive formalities may still find plenty of meat in the purely sonic form of alienation the disc provides.'
