Musique Concrète Realizations Of Two Poems By Robert Creeley

(Beniffer Editions) 7-inch $11.80 (Out-of-stock)

Creeley readings of “The Pattern” and “Dimensions” (both dense with complicated meanings often running together, and difficult to set musically) taken in new directions by this American expat living in Canada who, subsequent to these 1968 recordings, would release material via the Opus One, Sound Of Pig, and Albany labels. The A-side is manipulated with speed change, splicing, direction change, and multitracking, while on the flip, Creeley’s narration occurs over and through the dense texture, his voice blending into a mangled and distorted free improvisation on cello and percussion. Screen-printed gatefold jacket. White vinyl. Edition of 300
