Attention Span – Jennifer Scappettone
Once again I am away from my shelves, so render these but demi-impressionistically:
David Buuck | constraint-based board-bearing made-to-order essays | various performances | 2008
Cringing through this with his Catholic aunts enriched the context.
Taylor Brady & Rob Halpern | Snow Sensitive Skin | Atticus/Finch | 2007
Dolores Dorantes, trans. Jen Hofer | sexoPUROsexoVELOZ | Counterpath and Kenning Editions | 2008
Difficult to choose between this and lip wolf, Hofer’s translation of Laura Solòrzano’s lobo de labio put out by Action Books in 2007. Read the notes as you read the lyrics.
Carla Harryman | direction for Kathy Acker’s Requiem | work toward performance as part of Poet’s Theater Showcase at Links Hall, Chicago | 2008
Rendered “reading” a spatialized & corporeal experience, formosa.
F.T. Marinetti | Venezianella e studentaccio | typescript | 1944
Gothic Baroque Rococo Impressionist Secessionist Futurist Refusturism.
Luigi Nono | Intolleranza 1968 | Sofferte onde serene | Prometeo: Tragedia dell’ascolto | various years, performances, publications
“To listen to the dark, to listen to how the lights move, how the water emanates light. To listen to the way the sky is a creature of the stones, of the tiles, of the water. To know how to see and hear the invisible and inaudible. To arrive at the lowest grade of audibility, visibility.”
Roberto Rossellini | Paisà | OFI | 1946
Makes “site-specificity” seem trifling. Needs to be issued anew.
Aldo Rossi | A Scientific Autobiography | MIT | 1981
How have I never had this recommended to me? Oh, right. Ditto.
Leslie Scalapino | It’s go in horizontal: Selected Poems, 1974-2006 | Wesleyan UP | 2008
Anti-citational oppositional time, “entirely from the inside out.” A clamorous ethics not just a phenomenology: a tall order for poetry, finally gathered here.
Hannah Weiner’s Open House | Ed. Patrick Durgin | Kenning Editions | 2006
Haskell Wexler | Medium Cool | H&J | 1969
Time precisely to watch it again.
