fümsböwö – the art of noise (from Dada to Sound Poetry)

by Dirk Huelstrunk:
writer, sound poet, audioartist, curator & educator based in Frankfurt am Main /Germany

Short history of sound poetry focusing on the roots in European Dada/Futurist movements with an outlook to the diverse and international sound poetry/sound art scene today with historic audio examples and sound poetry live performance.
Though the genre of sound poetry was developed by poets & writers, it has soon become an intermedia art, between language, music, art. Modern sound poets come from all genres though the connection to (new) music is obviously strong. Working with sound and language has also become very popular in the visual arts.

Technical requirements: 
sound system sufficient for the room. Active speakers or P.A. system with jack plug/phone connector & RCA (Cinch) input,
Sound historic examples come from laptop or data medium (data stick, CD) & some examples can be performed live.
