NOTES

Sébastien Lespinasse, born in 1975, in Marseille. Lives and works in Toulouse, France. Founding member of the group (Branqu'art: performances and happenings in everyday life. My current interests in sound-poetry are focused on the notion on indetermination. The 'score-poem' is but the sign of a possible way, of a wandering among sounds and meaning in formation. Trying to uproot the letter in view of a poetry concrete and projective. An exploration seeking the boiling points of language.
