Writing with Sound

For Audiograft Festival 2019 artists Kate Liston & Tess Denman-Cleaver lead a series of practical, performative writing activities that drew on poet Gertrude Stein’s ‘cultivated motor automatism’ exercises and musician and teacher François Delsarte’s taxonomy of naturalistic gestures. The workshop introduced strategies for writing with, for and about sound that focus on the gestures of writing and listening. 

This workshop was part of the development of Town Hall Meeting of the Air.
