Sound assistance Mara Schwerdtfegher.
Undoing the traditional hierarchies of sound producer (voice) and recorder (device) – similarly writer/reader, performer/listener – this parenthetical poem composed of sounds we might call noise or hum is a stuttering assemblage in the digital register that moves attention to the listening body.
Loss, eruption and interference become structural elements in a material poetics of transmission. With something to ‘read’ while listening.
