One of Europe’s foremost “sound poets,” Jaap Blonk’s riveting performance style can evoke both laughter and tears. Here, his whimsical tour of sound poetry includes excerpts from classics by Hugo Ball, Kurt Schwitters, and John Cage as well as his own songs in invented languages, acoustic/electronic/phonetic soundscapes, and odd snippets from lectures. Cosponsored by Rain Taxi Review of Books and the University of Minnesota’s Institute for Advanced Study and Imagine Fund.
