Britain's best known sound poet is Bob Cobbing, but it's hard to come up with a list of other sound poets working in Britain in the '60s and '70s. It's equally difficult to think of any female sound poets working anywhere. LILY GREENHAM was Danish, but spent her childhood in Vienna. After several relocations across Europe she settled in London in 1972 with her British husband (musician and poet Peter Greenham), where she lived until her death in 2001. Nearly all of her own writings and compositions date from after her arrival in London, but prior to her arrival in London she had been involved in two major European art movements. The Wienner Group in the late 1950s and the "Groupe de Recherche d'Art Visuel in 1964. In London she began to record her own text based compositions that used a mixture of sound poetry techniques, electronics and multi-tracking. The term 'lingual music' that she coined for her compositions refers to her technique of using tape loops of text to create complex and dense musical structures. This 2CD set compiles a wide variety of her own work (1968 and 1984), including live solo performances, film soundtrack pieces, as well as many tape pieces.
