Gozo Yoshimasu is a poet and visual artist. He debuted in 1964 and has since produced poems that explore the boundaries of poetry, language and written text. Repetitions, references, talking in many voices, interruptions, subscripts, blank lines and marginal notes disrupt the narrativity of his poems, and at the same time, highlight the effect and visual representation of (the Japanese) language. Movement is a characteristic of Yoshimasu’s poetry. His readings are based on improvisation, making his poetry ever variable. In addition his poems are located between the tranquillity and the mobility of poetry – emphasized by variation in rhythm, sound and speed. Yoshimasu has published more than 30 collections of poetry and is considered to be one of the key figures in contemporary Japanese poetry.
The Poetry International festival asked the Worm/Klangendum team to join up with Gozo and make this radioplay together. So they did. This is the first version , the one that was recorded in the studio, appr. 5 minutes after they met.
The second version will also be broadcasted by Dr. Klangendum but at a later date.
