First Broadcast: 6pm - 2nd August 2012
Instead of profiling a specific artist, this programme covers the beginnings of Sound Poetry. When researching it, I started withKurt Schwitters, moving backwards to Hugo Ball and Fillipo Marinetti. I'm not entirely happy, as like the second programme, it felt a bit crammed and didn't really allow for any depth to what the artists brought to the movement. So much was left out that ties in to previous and future programmes, I now wish I'd kept my notes (Look out for the special pronunciation of Raoul Hausmann's 'fmsbwtözäu')
