Sound poets grapple with the material of language. Some take phonemes—the building blocks of words—to assemble something new, and others utilize non-verbal sounds, a palette of groans, gargles, and glossolalia. Often rooted in performance, many sound poets use nothing more than the noises they can extricate from their own bodies; others wield technology, from tape loops to algorithms, to pry at sound and sense. Sound poets toy with communication, and contemporary examples can range from playful to unsettling.
