[JUNE | 2006]
Evan Sornstein’s great appreciation for the unfettered humanity of E.E. Cummings is celebrated on this suite of twenty-two poems, read by twenty-two different people evenly spaced around the world. Set against an evocative, electronic backdrop of detailed soundscape, Nowever explores life and meaning, searching for Cummings’ “truths” through his own works, interpreted by the voices of glad and young, aged and ageless – busy monsters all – from Taipei to Glasgow, Sardinia to California.
“…poetry and every other art was and is and forever will be strictly and distinctly a question of individuality…” – E.E. Cummings (1953)
