You’re invited to the March installment in a series of month-long and one-day ONLINE workshops taught by a different writer each month throughout 2014. For this month we’re so full of happiness to continue the series with:
admission $100-150 sliding scale for four three-hour workshops
Each class will be held online through a video conferencing website.
Holophonic Sounds are designed to trick your mind into seeing alternate realities. Poetry too. But Holophonia is probably bunk. Bootleg. Make believe. Poetry too, & not at all.
So in this class we’ll listen to stuff, then we’ll write in relation to what we heard. Each week we’ll constellate sounds for each other; songs, readings, field recordings, whatever. We’ll share our playlists with the group. Then we’ll make some poems by way of our various involvements with these aural arrangements, attending all the while where & how we’re listening. The facts of our production, our made-ness & our making.
Maybe we’re closer to what’s known as ‘music’ than to what’s known as ‘the human.’ So we’ll try to hear for one another in that ordinary way, ‘like signals from a more intense life, a life that has not really been found.’ We’re favored by such sounds. They’re what we call our favorites. We’ll linger there, heartsick, ’cause, uh, the world, but we’ll hold our disease with a scavenger’s ear for the writing of some mash notes on our heavenly afflictions.
