James Allister Sprangs Turning Towards a Radical Listening
is a durational sonic experience in which a poem is written via speech-to-text technology and altered DJ equipment.
GAZR, a poet who has aligned himself with the histories of black music production, shares and manipulates samples from a wide range of recorded conversations with various poets on
the topic of becoming. From intimate, challenging, and radically vulnerable sonic fragments a soundscape is quilted, an audience is called to ponder the reflection of a black mirror
and a concrete poem is born.
