This is the sixth instalment of an innovative poetry series, presented by Royal Holloway Poetics Research Centre and Parasol unit. Hosted in partnership with Royal Holloway University of London.
Manfred Werder - Composer, performer and curator who focuses on possibilities of rendering the practices regarding composition and field. His recent scores have featured either found sentences from poetry and philosophy, or found words from whatever sources. His performances, both indoors and outdoors, aim at letting appear the world’s natural abundance. Earlier works include stück 1998, a 4000 page score whose nonrecurring and intermittent performative realization has been ongoing since December 1997.
lo wie is Beckett's Typist and a member of A.Typist, and organizing a music composition concert series, namsan. Currently staying in London.
