Developed a collaborative work with poet Richard Barrett
and performed it at the illustrious Maintenant Camerade series curated by Steven Fowler.

The conceit was that Richard wrote some poems and I performed an inflationary gesture on them
using a variety of appropriatory, improvisation and glitch techniques to fill the pages with text.
In performance we reflected this composition process, where I read relentlessly margin to margin
and Richard picked out his original poem from this ‘noise’.

 

Here’s one of the poems, which are published by Red Ceilings press here.
Richard’s original text is in bold.
