Experimental sound and audio art programme - Experimental is defined as "anything that is different, interesting, and can't easily be labelled as something else."

 

SoundPlay @Work 4

In the fourth instalment of the programme we focus on “Digitally produced audio poetry” and some newly released tracks from experimental label MILLE PLATEAUX.

So what exactly is digital audio poetry? well it’s defined as “a kind of poetry that utilises digitally recorded, digitally manipulated and digitally generated background ambience and musical accompaniment. Normally it’s designed to be heard through headphones to get the best effect and in some cases can be difficult to listen to (as with most experimental audio on a radio station), however attempts are being made to make it more immediately accessible through it’s musicality rather than its meaning."
