A Toronto New School of Writing Event you must attend

After my performance of Hugo Ball’s “Seepferdchen und Flugfische” at the Cameron House last year, it has been my dream to perform Kurt Schwitters’ “Ursonate” about half as well as Jaap Blonk. Thus, I am extremely excited for this event:

Toronto New School is pleased to host for one night only in Toronto international sound performance artist Jaap Blonk, who will give a talk on his work and its roots in the traditions of sound poetry and contemporary music. This will also include a performance by Blonk of solo pieces, as well as examples of his work accompanied by instrumentalists, other vocalists, and electronic media. There will also be a display of sound poetry scores and visual poetry, along with examples of text/sound animation and computer text generation.

You should be, too. It will beheld at 918 Bathurst: Centre for Culture, Art, Media + Education on Thursday May 26th at 7:30pm.
