No Longer Inert

On an idyllic late-April afternoon, I climbed the stairs to Al Filreis's second-floor office at the Kelly Writers House on the UPenn campus to chat with him about our mutual interest in making, gathering, listening to, interpreting, and teaching with poetry soundfiles. As we spoke, two microphones sent signals back to Al's computer, on the monitor of which waveforms danced in real time to our voices and all the noises environing them. A podcast is rumored to be in the works, but for now the unedited (except for the abrupt fade-out at the end) conversation can now be listened to here. (Thanks to Bathybius and Charles Bernstein for the recent links.)
