Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In The Sound Mirror, the human is no longer the galvanizing agent, thereby letting the writing convey other properties of existence. By means of verbal slippage, by means of sound as simultaneous mirroring, a curious neural capacity evolves in the reader of these poems, allowing an elemental contact with incandescent mystery." Will Alexander

More About the Author

Andrew Joron is a writer and musician living in Berkeley, California. He started out writing science-fiction poetry. Joron's poetry gradually evolved toward surrealism and other experimental forms. Joron's later poetry, combining scientific and philosophical ideas with the sonic properties of language, has been compared (by a reviewer in THE NATION magazine) to the work of the Russian Futurist Velimir Khlebnikov. Andrew Joron also plays the theremin in the dark ambient/improv band Cloud Shepherd.
