“/ʔ/, /θ/ & /ð/” – Ziska Killat

You have to stamp your little letters With spit to send them out. Who got to pick the sound of your voice? Do not say “SS”. “S”s require spit. They draw attention. How old is all this intention? Just born and full of sounds Your first language is nostalgia. Be observant of the stops. This one is full of stops. Do not say “SS”. Do not say “socialism” anymore either. Obstruct the airflow in the vocal tract Before vowels. Prevent vibration. Mouth dry and pausing. Wait, neatly – accommodate – attention. Your first language is nostalgia. Your first language comes with stories. So make good use of your teeth. Fought, sought, thought – Thinking, thoughts. Cause turbulence, Plot holes and dental friction:...

A.E. Sadeghipour – “Persian Has No Pronouns” | Domicilium

A.E. Sadeghipour came to Domicilium equipped with a slew of fine poems which demonstrated the breadth of her oeuvre. After revealing her obsession with the word ‘you’ to the audience, A.E. felt it necessary to explain from whence that obsession sprung. Her piece “Persian has No Pronouns” is an effort to give a bit of context to her fascination with pronouns.

The DubTalk ft. Marcus O’Shea

Marcus O’Shea was our honorable guest for the second venture into our DubTalk experimentation. A performance poet of the highest order, Marcus’s  fascination with language and his propensity for building fantastic characters and environments in his writing allows him to lure audiences into his world in order to enlighten them with insights into the human condition. Our interview with Marcus went exceptionally well, largely due to Marcus’s immediate comfort with the Dub Talk format. Many artists find it difficult to spring straight into the studio and be asked to improvise and be wacky, but Marcus did not shy away from our antics. From start to finish, Marcus brought excellence. He performed his pieces “Advice for Returning Astronauts”, Transmissions from the North”, and “His Silences” for us before whipping out an epic tale of female wrestling set in an alternative universe in which wrestling is more than showboating, it’s deadly.
