‘Poetic Convergence’

By Dylan Nixon

UGA Undergraduate Student

"This recording is a layered reading of selections from two different poems, 'SN' by Alice Walker and 'Black Marigolds' translated by E. Powys Mathers. The sounds consist of my voice overdubbed many times over as well as sounds generated by an analog synthesizer. All of the elements contribute to a feeling of fear and hopelessness and the long-term resilience both of these feelings and of the people who must find a way to cope with them."
