I have an essay ‘Disrupting the Market in Echoes: Voice, body and technology in poetry and performance by Hannah Weiner and Holly Pester’ in a recent issue of Performance Research published by Taylor & Francis. The issue, On Writing and Performance, is edited by Ric Allsopp and Julieanna Preston.
This essay considers questions of writing in its relation to voice, technology and performance through a reading of voiced and printed work by Hannah Weiner and Holly Pester. The focus is on two works, Holly Pester’s ‘Buddy Holly on my Answer Machine’ published in Hoofs (2011), from if p then q books, and ‘RJ Romeo & Juliet’ from Hannah Weiner’s Code Poems: From the INTERNATIONAL CODE OF SIGNALS for the use of all nations, published in 1982.
