Born and raised in Kansas, Michael Klausman currently lives with his family along Colorado’s Front Range. Since being expelled from University for excessive library late fines, he has gone on to work for a handful of influential record stores, and now helps produce reissues of obscure & out-of-print albums for various labels. He is also the co-founder of WRY, a small poetry press that operates out of his garage, and which mostly specializes in letterpress publications of obscure & under-known poets. He considers his own work to exist in a continuum with the small press poetry and avant-garde movements of the 1960s & ‘70s, citing the work of Emmett Williams, Frank Kuenstler, Robert Grenier, & Clark Coolidge as being central to his practice, along with the mental detritus that accumulates from reading too many Early Music & Ethnomusicological album liner notes.
Michael Klausman - Aeolian Darts (06SC companion mix)
Michael made this incredible mix for us as a companion to his upcoming book of poetry Aeolian Darts (06SC) released under our newly established publishing arm. The mix runs the gamut from sound poetry and artist pieces to minimalist electronics and ethnographic recordings, a perfectly conceived hermetic conversation in sound and song.
