This is the first publication on Sonic Poetics, to be launched at Cafe Oto on the 5th of June 2022:


A book of poems inspired by sound and song lyrics, some original lyrics from Blood Music records, some poems inspired by CC Hennix, Paul McCarthy, Sun City Girls, Plastic Ono Band, Nirvana, Bernhard Günter, The Residents, Dionna Warwick, YMO, Lankum, Missing Channel. Song lyrics, album titles, interviews are repurposed in order to extract latent unconscious meanings within those song lyrics, which are then filtered through the author's own desiring-listening process of sonic poetics.
