Mouth Pieces

Solo Soundsinging
AVTR 021
2000

No electronic effects or processing, no feedback, overdubs, or fades. Twenty-one acoustic oral solos, working at the outer reaches of the technical and expressive potential of human utterance, fashioned from sounds, textures, and even a few words.

Paul Dutton’s oral soundworks have placed him at the forefront of sound poetry and free improvisational soundsinging worldwide. He is renowned as a soloist, a member of the CCMC free improv band (1989-present) and The Four Horsemen poetry performance group (1970-88).
