The recordings capture a program inspired by the revolutionary zaum' (transrational) poetry of the Russian avant-garde. The performance explores the link between early sound experiments and what came to be known, in the post-Word War II era, as sound poetry. This event provides a rare opportunity to hear both dramatic readings by the Russian scholar Oleg Minin of Russian Futurist zaum' ("beyonsense") and performances by the experimental poets Christian Bök and Steve McCaffery of their own sound poetry. Gerald Janecek, an expert on twentieth-century Russian avant-garde poetry, introduces the evening. By bringing together sound poetry of the historical and contemporary avant-gardes, the program chronicles the singular influence of poets Velimir Khlebnikov, Alexei Kruchenykh, and Vladimir Mayakovsky on subsequent experimentation, particularly that of Bök and McCaffery, including the use of invented words, the sensical and nonsensical, and the creation of "meaning" through sound
