Franz Mon (born 1926) is a pioneer in the field of concrete, visual and phonetic poetry. He once licked the new radio play into shape like no other german-speaking playwright before him. As a sound poet and with his 'articulations' or phonetic pieces, he conceptually renewed sound poetry in the postwar years. This LP collects some of Mon's earliest concrete phonetic poems recorded 1962-64 as well as the radio-play 'Ich bin der ich bin die' from 1971. Edition of 400 copies. 320g picture sleeve and 280g printed inner-sleeve, including linernotes and artist biography in english.
