Page as Score: Collaboration & Improvisation 

field recordings

A performance and conversation at the intersection of poetry and musical improvisation.  Musician/composer Holland Hopson and Poet Hank Lazer have been performing and recording their collaborations for a few years.  The NOPF session arises from their current recording sessions of pages/poems from Lazer’s forthcoming book field recordings  of mind   in morning  (BlazeVOX, 2021)– with Hopson playing banjo and fretless banjo.  Included in the performance will be a page or two from Lazer’s shape-writing book Slowly Becoming Awake.  Via screen share, we will share images of the work being performed.  Time will be included for Q&A.
