      Cedar Sigo | Shadows Crossing: Tones of Voice Continued

      10/24/2019

      6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct 24Auditorium

      Are the tones of voice we gain in writing simply shadows passing over the vast terrain of language? Join us for a lecture with author and editor Cedar Sigo as he attempts to uncover the acoustic aspects of his own poetic line and to chart what he learns of its underlying cosmos. How have qualities of voice become unlocked and sustained throughout both ancient and contemporary practice? Sigo addresses how components of singing, storytelling and texts by visual artists have formed his path so far. Works by Charles Reznikoff, US Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, Eileen Myles, Pitseolak, Gertrude Stein, dg nanouk okpik, and Philip Guston will be shared and discussed. Presented by 49 WritersBagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry and the Anchorage Museum. Free. Please use the museum’s 7th Avenue entrance.
