A Notebook on the Wonderful Wordless Phrasings of Amiri Baraka
I've been studying Amiri Baraka's poetry and his sounds for many years now. With tremendous heavy lifting by Ben Ostermeier, IRIS Center technician, we were able to translate some of my interests into an interactive site displaying Baraka's wonderful wordless phrasings.
The site allows you to hear excerpts of Baraka humming and projecting an array of sounds.
