Recital, an experimental label in LA, USA, released in November 2022.12th International Sound Poetry Festival BOX SET.

The box contains a 30-piece cassette recording the performances of 4 sound poets, and a 240-page book with scores, artwork, and biographies. Comes with DL code.

Below is a commentary by the label.

After years of preparation, the recital presents the 12th International Sound Poetry Festival box set. The 1980 New York festival was the last in this pioneering series that began in Stockholm in the 1960s. It is an ambitious document containing nearly 30 hours of audio from 5 artists.Also included is a 240-page book of biographies, texts and artwork for each artist, accompanied by program notes by Charlie Morrow and Sean McCann.

The ten-day festival brought together a battalion of soundpoets from around the world to share the stage at Manhattan's Washington Square Church.Established soundpoets are juxtaposed with lesser-known artists, some of them more enthusiastic.Carles Santos, John Giorno, and the Four Horsemen, for example, deliver an onslaught of words.And Bernard Heidschek, in "Democratie II", his cries and groans can be heard swaying on walls and ceilings, increasing in intensity as if he were shouting at the French Parliament in the Luxembourg Palace.Allison Knowles presents a theatrical ensemble reading (with bean playing), and Robert Joseph and Pierre van Dyck's understated concept pieces for voices and book page-turning sounds are of particular interest. was.

I think 1980 was a turning point for sound poetry.While there seems to be more new sound poetry than ever before, the genre is beginning to fade and dissolve into a pool of other experimental sound practices using new digital techniques.From this tape, it seems that you can hear the breath of generational change.But of course, in the end, sound poetry is still alive and well, and such nitpicking becomes more a matter of personal taste and perception than anything else.The beginning of any project or movement, the state of purity, is always romantic, and fortunately this collection includes many pioneers.

Recital:

"After years of preparation, Recital is proud to present the 12th Annual International Sound Poetry Festival box set. Held in New York in 1980, this was the last festival of the pioneering series, first started in Stockholm in the 1960s. This ambitious document holds nearly five hours of audio from 30 artists. A 240-page book with biographies, texts, and artwork from each artist supplements the edition, including program notes by Charlie Morrow and Sean McCann.

The 10-day festival collected a battalion of sound poets from around the globe to share the stage at Washington Square Church in Manhattan. Both established sound poets are juxtaposed with more obscure artists, some more fervent than others. Carles Santos, John Giorno, and The Four Horsemen, for example, convey a verbal onslaught. And Bernard Heidsieck, you can hear his shouted and snarled words of “Democratie II” shimmering against the walls and ceiling, amplifying in intensity as if he is screaming at the French Parliament in the Palais du Luxembourg. Not all performances are aggressive; Alison Knowles presents a theatrical ensemble reading (with bean performance), and the subdued conceptual work of Robert Joseph and Pier Van Dijk's for voice and the sound of turning book pages is particularly interesting.

The year 1980 seemed like a turning point for sound poetry: there were seemingly more new sound poets than ever, yet the genre began to dissipate and melt into a pool of other experimental sound practices with newer digital technologies. in these tapes, mid-exhale. But of course at the end of the day sound poetry is still alive and well, and splitting hairs as fine as these becomes more a matter of personal taste/perception than anything else. There will always be a romanticization of the beginning of any project or movement, the pure state, and luckily this collection includes many of the pioneers. 

Artists included: Carles Santos, Jackson Mac Low, Greta Monach, Bernard Heidsieck, Katalin Ladik, Jerome Rothenberg, Mary Ellen Solt, John Giorno, Armand Schwerner, Charles Stein, Beth Anderson, Charles Amirkhanian, Richard Kostelanetz, Franz Kamin, Michael Gibbs, The Four Horsemen (bpNichol, Rafael Barreto-Rivera, Paul Dutton and Steve McCaffery) ), Adriano Spatola, Paula Claire, Sten Hanson, Charlie Morrow, Glen Velez, Larry Wendt, Nina Yankowitz, Robert Joseph, Pier Van Dijk, Alison Knowles, Bern Porter, P.
