A Stranger Here

Reflections from within Strange Pearls
WithChris Goode

In this playful essay, falling somewhere between prose poem, performance text and critical testimony, Chris Goode attempts to capture the experience of undertaking a live vocal performance of a particular work of visual poetry, Michael Basinski’s ‘The Germ of Creativity’. Goode’s intention is to propose a highly partial and contingent embodied critical practice that expands to accommodate the same forces of liveness and multiplicity as the concertedly slippery work it is exploring.
