Paula Claire - Fellowship Of The Green Parrot (Cassette)
Sound poet Paula Claire created the Fellowship of the Green Parrot after spending hours in a call-and-response partnership with her friend’s parrot. This album on Toronto-based avant publisher Underwhich Audiographics is a collaboration with electro-acoustic artist Peter Stacey. The pieces utilize repetition, drone, sampling, sound poetry and effects, and cover a wide variety of topics and techniques from text based on tracings of silver birch bark to a post-Chernobyl walk with bagpipes. All the covers are hand drawn by bpNichol’s wife Sarah.
Unplayed vintage cassette, all covers are hand-drawn.
