Poetry & Improv #2 – Paul Hegedus, poet; Kyle Brenders, saxophonist

Posted in Events, Past events by thisaintblog on January 25, 2009

kylePAUL HEGEDUS is the author of In Stereo published by BookThug. In stereophonic recording twin microphones are positioned in order to more accurately record and represent a sonic moment. In Stereo takes this as its guiding principle. The collection is a record of dualities: this is split speaker, split personality, poetic turntablism flipped a-side to b-side. Found language from a wide variety of source texts forms a mashup of manipulated sampled materials.

KYLE BRENDERS was a student of the composer Alvin Lucier at Wesleyan University. Recently Kyle collabourated with the legendary saxophonist Anthony Braxton and the result is a 2 cd set called Toronto (Duets). Last fall he performed Sunday evenings for two months at Somewhere There with a band called The Rent in a tribute to Steve Lacy. And of course Kyle played the Lacy parts on soprano sax. Paul Hegedus wrote the liner notes for Kyle’s solo cd. Listen to Kyle on My Space.
