Spoken word, Interview, AudioTheatre

These are two podcasts I found on PoetryFoundation’s site, they introduce some great content of UbuWeb. They are not very long, definitely worth listen. I looked up some of the artists mentioned.
Here they are…

1. This is a collection of Interviews and a short introduction to other people’s different ways of interviewing other people – or people interviewing themselves – or eventually… their cats!

Carolee Schneemann
“I don’t identify my work with woman’s work – I identify my situation with a woman’s situation.”

Robert Ashley’s interviews with ppl:
2 hours of sound… 1st hour: interview with an artist. 2nd hour: a performance about what they were talking about in the interviews

Marcel Broodthares interviewing his cat

interview-loops with John Cage, composition of interview
repetition, making language abstract by looping. interview as a method of musical composition.

whispered interview, John Cage speaks with Richard Kostelanetz about the techniques he used in “Writing Through Finnegans Wake

cage- norton lectures
about the struggle that it took him 10 years to gather COURAGE to perform the silent piece

Uh yes, uh no – Jeff Gordon. Andy Warhol as an omnipotent oracle 😉

2. And the second podcast introduces different interpretations of Gertrude Stein’s stuff collected on UbuWeb.

interpretation of Making of Americans – Gertrude Stein, already singing by page 670…

contemporary audioplays out of Stein’s works! this is very inspiring…
