Voices of Dada is part of LTM's popular series of archive audio CDs exploring 20th century avant-garde and modern art. The album features interviews and phonetic poetry by six leading figures from the Dada movement, active between 1916 and 1923. Most of the material is in the English language.
MARCEL DUCHAMP contributes two extended interviews recorded in 1959, together with a reading from A l'infinitif (1967). TRISTAN TZARA offers a 1948 recording of his poem Pour Compte, while KURT SCHWITTERS is represented by recordings made in 1932 of his best known phonetic poems, Die Sonata in Urlauten and An Anna Blume. There is also an extended interview with RICHARD HEULSENBECK from 1959, plus a reading from Fantastic Prayers. RAOUL HAUSMANN is heard on three phonetic poems written in 1918 and recorded in 1956, as well as a colourful interview from 1959. HANS (JEAN) ARP contributes Dada-sprüche, a rare recording from 1961.
Voices of Dada runs for 76 minutes, with a 12 page booklet in the CD featuring detailed liner notes and images.
