“Gedichterbe” is Antye Greie-Ripatti’s project for exploring German poetic and linguistic heritages through electronic music. Poems are selected beyond the times — from Frau Ava, a female poet in the 11th century, to Jewish poets in the 20th century and the contemporary experimental poet Ann Cotten — and she deconstructs and reconstructs the texts to create electronic sound poetry employing the latest digital technologies.
