I have an essay up at Voice Alpha, “Reading poetry with video: some first impressions.” Inspired by a terrific live videopoetry performance I saw this past August at the Filmpoem Festival in Dunbar, Scotland, I wanted to try and do something similar: what I call, for lack of a better term, videopoem karaoke. I finally had a chance on Wednesday, and it seemed to go pretty well. Photos and a full report at the link.
