Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Starting from the perspective that the sound of the voice is crucial to our perceptions and understandings of language, Writing Aloud examines the relationship between sound, language, orality and hearing. In a new and groundbreaking dialogue between the literary and sonic arts, this book and accompanying compact disc features such cutting edge writers, composers and artists as Robert Ashley, David Merritt, Laetitia Sonami, Vito Acconci, Steve McCaffery, Achim Wollscheid, GX Jupitter Larsen, Marina Abramovic and Sue Golding. Together, the writings and recordings collected here examine how voice both as concept and as material object contributes to and influences communication, writing and textual practices, and musical production and experimentation. This exciting book will be of interest to anyone concerned with the expanding fields of experimental music and sound collage, avant-garde poetry, and literary theory.

With accompanying compact disc.
