David UU - High C: Selected Sound and Visual Poems 1965 - 1983 (Book)
A uniquely visual voice on the Canadian concrete poetry scene. The late UU's wide ranging optic syntax is rendered here in deluxe quality which includes xerographic and silk-screen tip-ins. A truly eye-opening reading experience which shows the full range of the printed word, letter even.
David UU (pronounced David W.), or David W. Harris (1948-1994), is considered an accomplished concrete and experimental poet and an important small press publisher. Along with bill bissett and bpNichol, he was a pioneer of the concrete-poetry movement in Canada, and perhaps the first Canadian poet to explore visual collage embodying literary, philosophical and language references. He also composed sound works (both musical & textual), made 8mm short films, was a master collagist/montagist and performed in numerous performance art exhibitions.
