Alistair NOON (Great Britain)

Alistair Noon (1970, Ashford, England) poet, lingua-artist, performer. Started his creative literary and artistic activities in the late 1980s. He studied Germanic and Slavic Philology at the Universities of Bristol (England) and Voronezh (Russia) in 1989-1993. Since 1995, he has been actively involved in the area of sound and visual poetry, regularly taking part in collective readings and holding solo poetry readings. He has published two sound poetry collections: earances (MC, Berlin: Rec. at Nudel-In-Odot Studios, 1997), Sound poems / Lautgedichte (CD, Berlin: Rec. at Cosmic 3068 Studio, 2000), in which he put together phonetic and conceptual productions of the recent years. In his sound poetry productions Noon focuses mainly on studying the phonetic trend traditional for sound poetry (e.g., falling consonant song); deverbalization of the poem takes place on the level of clearly recognizable phonemes, their various replacements and rotation. Another area of the authors research lies at the borderline between the verbal message and noise, that has no linguistic structure as such. Noon widely uses vocalizations (horsewords), working at determining the character of the sound (whisper, mutter or brokenness of voice), or at the sound complexes accompanying phonetic pronunciation (noises made by the tongue, aspiration, etc.) into voiceless. Noon also devotes his creative activities to zaum (e.g. rationalization) and conceptual (round-the-world sound poems or voyage poems, with dedication to Columbus) poetic methods. His productions have been published in various magazines, collections, literary miscellanies and anthologies of visual and sound poetry in Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, including Laut-Jazz Gedichte (in collab. with Ch. Jones) in LEuropa Sonora, antologia polipoetica (MC-set, Reggio Emilia: Edizioni Elytra, 1997), sound-poetic score in Word Score Utterance Choreography (London: Writers Forum, 1998), samples of visual poetry in Jahrbuch der Lyrik (Munich: C.H. Beck Ed., 1999) and others. He participated in a number of international colloquia, forums and festivals of experimental and audio poetry both in Great Britain and abroad, including the following: bobeobi, Internationales Festival der Lautpoesie (Berlin, 1996), Polysonneries Live Art Festival (Lyons, 1999), SubVoicive Poetry Reading Series (London, 1999), Festival de la Bâtie (Geneva, 1999). His productions have been broadcast on the radio, including Deutschlandradio, Südwestrundfunk, his performances have been highly praised in the media. In 1999, Noon wrote a text for the sound-installation Hundreds and Thousands by the Australian composer B. Dan (Kulturforum, Berlin, 1999-2000). He is the holder of several grants from the Berlin Senate (1996-1998) for the implementation of various creative projects and poetry productions (including Mitteleuropalied). Since 1993, Alistair Noon has been living and working in Berlin (Germany).
