Baobab issue #9 – Altagor


"French proto-Lettrist poet Altagor (real name Jean Vernier, 1915-1992) used onomatopeia in his 'Métapoésie' writings and an invented language in the 'Parole transformelle' visual poetry. Also an instrument builder, he accompanied his poetry readings on the pantophone, a stringed, bowed instrument, and the plectrophone, played with a stick. For an introduction to the sound world of Altagor, please refer to the article and sound file on Continuo-docs."
