bookshelves: scores, poetry

I have a signed copy from Jackson from 1978 - wch wd've been right around when I 1st met him or shortly thereafter. Each letter in each word has an assigned pitch. There are 10 letters in Moore's name - hence there are 10 pitches. MacLow was one of the most methodical of the scorers of performance poetry & this piece is a nice example. What's shown here as the 'cover' is the score. Its backside is the instructions as to how to perform it. I dug this out of my artist's bk box & I'm finding so much great stuff there that it's tempting to perform a whole concert based on scores like this one.

Margaret Joyce Hi, we're discussing this now at www.coursera.org in a free online course given by Al Filreis et al called 'Modern and Contemporary American poetry.' Check it out, if you're so inclined.

Tentatively, Convenience Thx for the tip! It's delightful to be able to so unexpectedly dip into something like that!
