SOUNDS & POETRY

       The project “Slovenia: sounds & poetry” was realized in the September of 2018 during the work on the residence program “The writer in the park”, organized by the  Ljubljana UNESCO City of Literature  direction. The project is dedicated to poetry and the study of sound mentality, to analysis of poetry and sounds interrelation.

       The sound mentality is the perception of the sounds, depending on the sound background in which a person grew up. Since childhood, the person lives in a certain sound environment, getting used to certain sounds. During the project, the sounds from Ljubljana and about 10 cities, villages, places were recorded, and these sounds became a starting point for the series of poems writing.  The sound is always in the context, especially in cities, and it isn’t about only harmony, but also about the sounds conflicts. It’s something in common with poetry sounds, because in poetry the sound itself does not work. The poem is alive only from the context of sounds, as well as the whole picture of the city.

       Thank The Ljubljana UNESCO City of Literature direction for the opportunity to implement the project and The Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature office for the informational support.
