Podcast

"When we are surprised by art -- as I was surprised by the work of sound-text-performance artist Anat Pick -- new experiences are possible, because our defenses are down." In this episode of Hard to Say, featured recordings from former International Writing Program participant Anat Pick's recording 'Voice: Dada Sound Poetry' explore the new possibilities in performance reading.

Listen to the recording: Hard to Say #29: The Defense of Meaning: Encountering Dada.

Anat PICK (sound-text performance artist; Israel) began her career as a pianist, eventually branching out to develop a repertoire of innovative language-oriented performance, one elaborating from the base of a phonetic mixture of eastern and western languages. For the past decade, Pick has given concerts across Israel, the Far East, and Europe. Her many collaborations with other artists and musicians have involved a variety of forms, including spoken word and free-improvisation. She maintains an intense interest in the performance of Dada sound poetry.
