NEXT STOP CHICAGO--TWO BIG ROCKPILE EVENTS!!
ROCKPILE Symposium--Music and Poetry: The Art of Poetry Collaboration.
Tuesday, November 17th 5pm to 8pm
Columbia College Chicago,
600 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60605
About: Since Kenneth Rexroth and Langston Hughes first collaborated with jazz musicians (but then Jelly Roll Morton claimed to have collaborated with authors, as well) poetry and music have enjoyed a special relationship. The subject ranges far and wide: Brecht's Threepenny Opera, Allen Ginsberg's manic rock combos, modern hip-hop, the singer-songwriter tradition of troubadors such as Bob Dylan and Lou Reed--the relationship between music, specifically jazz, and poetry has been percolating for generations. Sit in with these artists as they discuss this tempestuous relationship in a rapid-fire panel discussion about poetry and music.
Panelists include: David Meltzer, Michael Rothenberg, Art Lange, Dan McNaughton, Tony Trigillio, Ed Roberson, Dan Godston, Larry Sawyer, Francesco Levato, Terri Carrion, Bob Malone, and others.
