Eduard Escoffet

Eduard Escoffet was born in Barcelona, where he lives and works. His work encompasses various forms of poetry: sound, visual and textual poetry, and performance. An active representative of the young generation of Catalan poets, his influences range from medieval and avant-garde literature to textualism and sound art. He states that he makes vindication of orality, avoiding publication: he works with voice, computer, projections. He works as a sound poet, has organized important sound and action poetry events in Spain, and has performed in Italy, France , Germany and the United States . Collaborated with musicians like Walter Thompson, Josep-Maria Balanya and Germana Civera. The English translation of his poem "hi ha la dona" published here was made by Graham Thomson.
