Dial a poem (London, UK)

room 30 ECHOES

Walpole Park, Mattock Ln, London, England W5 5BS, United Kingdom

There are things that are worth bringing back from the past: Dial-a-Poem is certainly one of these.

Dial-a-Poem celebrates 50 years since John Giorno’s public art project launched in New York City.

Giorno’s Dial-a-Poem connected callers to answering machines playing recordings by poets such as Allen Ginsberg, John Cage and Patti Smith.

This sound walk is a tribute to Giorno's Dial-a-poem

I have selected thirty poems from John Giorno amazing project Dial a Poem now in Ealing, London. So, just enjoy.

I am a sound artist and I live in UK. I am the founder of the Poetry Sound Library, and archive that preserve the voices of poets from past and present. I research ways to link poetry to the landscape. My sound walks are in UK and around the world. "Voice of Trees" is a sound walk to discover the voices of the most important poets from the Poetry Sound Library archive: monumental trees receive a poet's voice and they become part of an inspiring sound installation.
