Silent Diagrams is a series of pencil drawing over a single poem. The drawings document my process of visualizing poetic activity to create diagrams, which illustrate and generates spaces for live performance. The diagrams were originated during the development of Thus in the crossing, a poetic dance performance in collaboration with choreographer Elaine Thomas. Out now on Knives, Forks and Spoons.
zimZalla object 017 is Pomegranates in the Oak, a sound collage CD with discovered and manipulated text by Alison Gibb and text and sound treatments by Tom Jenks.
The object’s primary text is Virginia Andrews’ 1979 novel Flowers in the Attic, from which Gibb, using instinctive selection and placement, has created a second text. This second text was then replicated sonically using spoken recordings by Gibb of the relevant sections of the original novel, with selected words and phrases isolated and spliced in order, preserving uneven and disjunctive patterns of tone and stress. This sonic collage was then fed through speech to text software to create a third, shadow text, which was recorded and added as a layer to the first track. Finally, a selection of samples, suggested by the hybrid text, were added, with some distortion. More at the zimZalla site.
