Kurt Schwitters: Ursonate

Kurt Schwitters: Ursonate by Chris Goode

An extremely rare opportunity to hear a live performance of perhaps the most significant sound poetry work of the 20th century, and a key artefact in the history of the avant-garde. Kurt Schwitters’s Dada-influenced 1932 score, ten years in the creation, makes uncommon demands on the performer, and provides an exhilarating, confounding, often harrowingly beautiful experience for the listener. Chris Goode’s recital will also include short works by Samuel Beckett, Cathy Berberian and Bob Cobbing.
