Sound Poetry, Experimental.
Live Sound Poetry at the Colour Out Of Space Festival in Brighton, UK, September 7th 2007 (curated by Dylan Nyoukis). This was Henri's second last public performance before his death on January 3rd 2008.
Henri Chopin (18 June 1922 – 3 January 2008) was an avant-garde poet and musician. Both his siblings died during the war. One was shot by a German soldier the day after an armistice was declared in Paris, the other while sabotaging a train (Acquaviva 2008). Chopin was a French practitioner of concrete and sound poetry, well known throughout the second half of the 20th century.
Henri Chopin - Sauvagerie. 5 years ago 5 years ago. sound poetry. Since the end of the 50's, Henri Chopin, an explorer in the new recorded sound poetry field, has never ceased, through his own work as well as through his publishing activities (the magazine Cinquième Saison from 1959 to 1963, then the magazine with record OU from 1964 to 1974) to defend the electronic explorations of the voice and the body, the grain.
Most of Chopin's compositions were for solo piano, although he did compose two piano concertos (his concertos No. 1 and No. 2 are two of the romantic piano concerto repertoire's most often-performed pieces) as well as some other music for ensembles.

Henri Chopin (1922-2008) was one of the most significant and influential avant-garde, sound and concrete poets of the second half of the 20th century. In his work as a sound poet, he was an early practitioner of a complex vocal art which he described and defined as poésie sonore, in which he used his voice, a microphone, and elementary "home" recording technologies to manipulate a vast tapestry of sounds with his compositions.
Henri Chopin (. 922) makes the decisive break from a phonetic basis to sound poetry and develops his self-styled 'audiopoems'. The audiopoem utilizes microphones of high amplification to capture vocal sounds on the threshold of audition. In this respect Chopin's work can be regarded in the tradition of lexical decomposition outlined above. Prior to this Nichol had investigated electroacoustic effects (largely echo and reverb) on his album Motherlove. However, Nichol's interest has never developed beyond this one, isolated instance. In conclusion, it should be said, that this Introduction is intended to be no more than a survey of current concerns against a background that is still being 'invented'.
