Lauren Newton (vocalist) performing poems by Ernst Jandl

Solo voice performance of poems by Austrian writer and poet, Ernst Jandl with whom I worked, performed and recorded over a 10-year period. He introduced me to an entirely new world of semantics in German, Austrian-German, and English with a focus on the sound and underlying meaning of language; the fun of deconstructing a word or sentence to change its intention, the timing of delivery of a sound or word or sentence and the rhythmical aspect of these...and then the humor in so many of his poems balanced with earnestness. Special thanks to Otmar Klammer, camera. The venue is Stockwerk in Graz, Austria. The poems are in German. March 3, 2015
