As part of IKLECTIK’s Digital Culture and Gender Series </coding in GE>, Points of Listening will host a special event with artist Antye Greie (AGF). Greie will present her work and be in conversation with Chris Bohn (The Wire).
Exactly what are words worth? AGF’s label has just released Syntax Mirror, a German language EP by writer, poet and rapper DALIB. AGF produced the EP as well as providing musical settings for DALIB’s raps. Her label has also released three albums setting English translations of poems by Japanese, Russian and Finnish writers. For AGF, “English has monopolised the music market and is our global language… I use English in my own music to take part in the global conversation.”
How does switching tongues affect rhythm and sound, words and meaning?
