This episode is in three parts:
Part one - David Turner is at Oslo Literaturhuset speaking to local poet Maria Dorothea Schrattenholz. The pair discuss the influence that science fiction has had over her work. Image of Maria by Carsten Aniksdal.
Part two (33:04) - David Turner talks to, recent, Forward Poetry Prize nominee Melissa Lee-Houghton. The pair discuss all manner of things and there is some rude language in this section.
Part three (01:15:05) - Two recordings taken from the “Rest & its Discontents” exhibition at Mile End Pavilion. First is a piece for three voices devised by James Wilkes called “and I remember a feeling of tightness on the skin…”. This work is based on transcripts of interviews about three people’s experiences of a poetry reading. The transcripts have been organised into a score that explores the ways in which speech elaborates moments of experience, bringing them into being through the work of the voice and through a kind of digestion, of chewing over, which is shared, public and provisional. The second recording (1:31:33) is Emma Bennett’s “SHIFT”. “SHIFT” is a composition drawn from a night-long navigation through a neglected iTunes account. What should be a curated collection of self-defining music is, on this battered laptop, an accidental archive of an artistic practice: stocked with fragments of performance, attempted bird imitations, recorded conversations, and cheap sound effects. “SHIFT” shuffles, impetuous and fascinated, through this database, using indecision, boredom and defiant shamelessness as compositional techniques.
