Torna a farsi sentire urgente e forte la voce poetica di Anne Waldman in uno dei suoi album migliori pubblicato a New York da Fast Speaking MusicSciamachy. I testi sono tratti dalle raccolte Trickster Feminism, Extinction AriaVoice’s Daughter of A Heart Yet To Be Born; per la musica le danno una mano tra gli altri anche William Parker e Laurie Anderson.

Anne Waldman - poet, performer, professor, editor, literary curator, cultural activist - is the author of over 50 books. Growing up in the counter-cultural mecca of downtown Manhattan in the ’50s and ’60s, she went on to co-found the Poetry Project in New York’s East Village, booking poetry readings for luminaries such as William Burroughs, Cecil Taylor, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Eileen Myles, and countless others. In 1974 she co-founded the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics with Allen Ginsberg in Boulder, Colorado; and in 1975 she toured with Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue. In the decades following, Waldman went on to headline poetry festivals throughout five continents, receive numerous awards such as The Guggenheim Fellowship, and teach thousands of poetry students all over the world. Sciamachy finds Anne at the height of her luminary power, and further solidifies her position as cult literary hero for multiple generations.
