Text-Sound-Art is a new deep-listening platform for sound artists to respond to poets.

The project involved the cross-pollination of concepts and techniques drawn from all of the creative practices involved including poetry and spoken word, music, and sound design (including music, found-sound, foley, and spatialised composition).

Six key principles have been developed providing the conceptual framework here: Principles.

The current project entitled ‘Then Before’, featured the work of the sound artist Wajid Yaseen responding to a series of three poems by three poets – Shamshad Khan, Jack Underwood, and Alice Kemp.
