Background Noise: Henri Chopin tribute, Peter Rehberg interview part two

Posted in Background Noise by loops on April 4, 2008


Henri Chopin was a pioneering and very influential French sound poet.He passed away at the age of 85 on January 3 this year at his home in England. As poet, painter, graphic artist and designer, typographer, independent publisher, film-maker, broadcaster and arts promoter, Chopin’s work is a barometer of the shifts in European media between the 1950s and the 1970s.His publication and design of the classic audio-visual magazines Cinquième Saison and OU between 1958 and 1974, each issue containing recordings as well as texts, images, screenprints and multiples, brought together international contemporary writers and artists such as members of Lettrisme and Fluxus, Jiri Kolar, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Tom Phillips, Brion Gysin, William S. Burroughs and many others, as well as bringing the work of survivors from earlier generations such as the Dadaist Raoul Hausmann and Marcel Janco to a fresh audience. Thank You Henri for opening people’s ears to the often overlooked sounds of human voice.  And for championing the forgotten but much loved reel-to-reel tape machine. Your Legacy will live forever.Now his 1965 audio poeme L’energie sommiel from his sound poetry magazine OU.This Will Be Followed by reflections on Henri Chopin by our own sound poet Amanda Stewart whose work really embodies his concepts,spirit and vitality.
