Aram Saroyan – Crickets

Two recordings:

Exhibit A

Performance of “Crickets” a poem by Aram Saroyan, during Other Minds Festival 23 – Sound Poetry: The Wages of Syntax. Recorded on April 9, 2018, at ODC Theater in San Francisco, California.

Exhibit B
1975 American sound poetry recording, 10+2.
Released December 21, 2004 on CD
Available via Naxos (if your library subscribes)

Exhibit C
The score:

Aram Saroyan - Crickets

The 1975 version is rendered by one voice only… the 2018 version is more participatory and makes suggestive use of a recording of actual crickets to conclude. The score is wide open.

And so for day 2863
