"It took artist Kurt Schwitters ten years to write the epic sound poem Ursonate, a sonata in “primordial sound.” As with his famed visual collages, Schwitters’ poem breaks down language to its constituent parts and reassembles them to find new meaning in the seemingly irrational. For more than 90 years, the work has inspired visual artists, composers, choreographers, and musicians. Join director Zoe Aja Moore and special guests as they stage a rare reading of the seminal piece, which places Schwitters’ primal sounds into a diverse assembly of bodies and voices." laphil.com
