POETRY-MUSIC COLLABORATION: A Workshop
WORKSHOP IN POETRY-MUSIC COLLABORATION
Well listen to some classic performances of poetry & jazz collaborations, dating back to the 30s with Langston Hughes poetry with jazz. Other poets and musicians of the 1960s with Beat Generation poets and their predecessors, Kenneth Rexroth and Kenneth Patchen. The listening will be accompanied by discussion of the value and difficulties of such collaborations/ performances. Well also talk about current performance and recording of poetry & music. Examples of hip-hop and rap music will be welcome. Then the workshop will turn to students practicing performance of their poetry. All the time remaining will belong to the students and their recitations and/or questions about all of the above.
