Make Perhaps This Out Sense Of Can You
20 March 2011
Produced by Eleanor McDowall
Bob Cobbing’s playful experiments with sound and text
have inspired a generation of poets, artists and composers. A writer whose work
skittered between literature and music, poetry and artwork - he is, perhaps,
best remembered for his extraordinary poetry readings. With his operatic,
resonant voice he would boom, howl, chant and whisper leaving his audience
enchanted and enraged in equal measures.
"...full of strange noises, electronic noodlings and sharply spitting wordplay"
