POLIPOETRY 4 (1988-90)

  1. Con Sonants (5'), music by L.S.D.: an attempt to communicate a universal language exploiting the sound of the consonants. A continuous rhythm done by the it.D.: an attempt to communicate a universal language exploiting the sound of the consonants. A continuous rhythm done by the italian group is a sort of musical wave creating a harmonic atmosphere. (foto spartito)
  2. Monòstico (4'), music by L.S.D.: monòstico is a poem done with only one line, from the point of view of sound poetry it becomes a way of exploring especially the first syllable 'mono' which is a symbol of monotony, but only through monotony or repetition we can get in touch with the core of the things.

  3. Regina (Queen) (Wav file, 211Kb/compressed, 52Kb)(5'), music by L.S.D.: the poem exploits the largest italian word, that's, 'precipitevolissimevolmente' which means something very fast and sudden, the poem is just dedicated to the 'queen' among the italian words, splitting it intro three different stages; the first 'precipite' brings the sense of falling down, 'volissime' is the sense of cold rationality and finally 'volmente' is conveying the sense of the flight.
  4. 'Poema' (Poem) (Wav file, 172Kb/compressed, 42Kb) (5'), music by L.S.D., is the oldest poem done by the author, it was done in 1979, still worth being listened to, despite the fact that it has been reduced to 5 minutes from the original 20. It is always the same word 'poem', which transforms itself becoming a way of transmitting different meaning from laughing to crying, from military voice to orgasm, from violent gun-bullets to the common talking.

All poems come along with a live Video strictly following the vocal exhibition. The images are taken from videopoems by the Author, produced at "Centro Video Arte" in Ferrara, "DPZ" in Zaragoza (Spain), and at the Pontifical University in São Paulo of Brazil. (VHS standard)

  2. Autopoema, autoradio y autodistrución (16'), music by Ares Tavolazzi, the poem has been produced for the National Spanish Radio RNE 2. It's a poem which develops a story: the listeners hear all the sounds typical of a car which is moving, then the travel goes on touching many spanish towns, for each town a poem, there is the typical voice of a radio speaking about listener's habits when he is listening to radio, till the final ruin of everything. The poem is in two parts , the first 9', the second 7'.

"now the ship is owned by the cook and what he trasmits from the commander's megaphone it is not the route to be followed but the list of what we 'll eat tomorrow"

A poem where the word puts herself again in the heart of the creation , a word which puts herself near the borders of incomprehension, a word at any case full of meanings, a word totally related to mimics, to music, to the light which does play a very important role in the live performance. A poem perfectly coherent with the theory of Polypoetry expressed by the author himself.
