PORES - A Journal of Poetics Research

Text and Music

Papers given at the Textmusic Symposium held at Birkbeck College on 23rd May 2009. The brief for the Symposium was to explore ‘Text and Music in their multiple relationships, both in theory and in poetic and musical practice, with special emphasis on collaboration as a process.’  See for details.

And work submitted in response to the following call: ‘Pores 5 will publish work that reflects upon relationships between music and text, text and music. We invite contributions that present and/or discuss collaborations between composers, musiciansand poets. We also invite theoretical investigation into how text and music have found and might discover formal and material correlates, cognate ways of working, and shared orientations towards the historical and the political. We also welcome work of any type (e.g. musical scores, vispo and text sound) that explores intersections and intermediations between poetic and musical practice.
