Alexander GORNON (Russia)

Until 1985 he had been known to the connoisseurs of poetry only by his oral performances, he published almost nothing. Since 1981 he has been developing polyphonosemantic trend in the Russian poetry. The desire to synthesize in the word temporal and spatial structures makes Gornon tackle various experimental technologies. His verses is both a graphic interpretation of sounding (mostly colour), and the very process of sounding (voice music), i.e. music, that is the result of multiple voice superimposition of various word fragments. Moreover, performing before the audience the author usually makes additional correction of the semantic lines right through the microphone onto the performed phonogram of voice music.

Russian poetry from mannerism to post-modernism (Moscow, 1994), Point of view. Visual poetry: 90s (Kaliningrad Ц Olsztyn, 1998), Genius Loci (Moscow, 1999) and others.
