Giving Voice: Poet Duriel Harris

Listen to this story
Poet Duriel Harris teaches at St. Lawrence University in Canton NY, and is one of many artists exploring "do-it-yourself" studio technology as a way to deepen the impact of her work. In this edition of Giving Voice she creates richly-textured soundscapes of music, sampled sound, and vocal effects to amplify the power of her words. She characterizes her work as po-mo funk, po-mo for post-modern, and funk for--well--funk. We'll listen to two of her studio compositions, "Living Body," from her collection Drag, and "Self Portrait at the Millennium," as well as a sample from a live performance. Host Dale Hobson talks with the poet about working in new media, and about working in collaboration.
