During this year’s StAnza Poetry Festival we had the privilege of meeting up with Rozalie Hirs, a Dutch composer of chamber and electroacoustic works, poet, vocalist and even chemical engineer. She mixes sound experiments and poetry, just one of the great things that StAnza specialises in; performances that simply cannot be contained by the page.
In the podcast she shares some of her compositions, and talks about her writing habits, discusses the brain’s capacity for interpreting and processing information in poetry and basically blows our minds. We also include snippets from her pieces in LA and Bridging Babel. You can find out more about Rozalie at her website, and her work is available for purchase on the iTunes and for download on her site. We had a really illuminating conversation, you can check out the whole podcast below.
