BOAT SHOES IN TWO ATTEMPS; a radioplay in the field of what
Number 12 is the second number of level 4 of spirit manifestation. The first number of this level is number 11 for which we said that its energy is similar to going in the open space for the first time without a space suit. So what we have here are two gentleman (2 minus 12 = negative, but two times negative is positive) sitting at the dock of the bay. Watching the tide. Etc. Bad bad actors. And as predicted, their space suits were left home. Nothing but bare muscles.
Produced by the X-Static Tics.
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 Yoshimasu¹s 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.
