“The ‘poetry’ in ‘E-Poetry’ does not signal a genre preference but an origin. That is, making as a means ofrealizing art, a delight in digital literary invention…”

For the past 10 years, Rattapallax magazine has been on the forefront of introducing readers with compelling literature, poetry, films and ideas from around the world. Timeout magazine has called the literary journal “the visceral, multimedia hit of poetry.” Rattapallax (issue 21), edited by Flávia Rocha, is now launching its first FREE APP issue for iPad — the natural path to a magazine that has been always committed to literature in various forms, medias and languages.
For the 6th Annual Edition, CYBERFEST 2012 explores the impacts of art and technology on society’s future through a 6 day multidisciplinary event titled ‘AT HEAVEN’S DOOR’. Exhibits, events and performances across St Petersburg’s top cultural venues present varied perspectives on the physical state of international New Media and the metaphysical directions it leads society.

Альманах [ Транслит ] провел 25 июля очередной эпизод Фестиваля поэзии на острове — при поддержке культурного пространства «Новая Голландия» и на одноименном острове.
Лекционная часть фестивальной программы посвящена новаторским подходам к описанию феномена современного поэтического письма, где Наталья Федорова рассказала о текущем состоянии генеративной поэзии, и вместе с Тарасом Машталиром продемонстрировала материал Machine Libertine.
“In Your Voice” by Machine Libertine:
These two video poems integrate four elements: Natalia Fedorova’s voice reading silky lines of her sonorous poetry in Russian, a Mac Os text to speech voice reading a translation in English, Taras Mashatalir’s haunting musical soundscapes, and Stan Mashov’s conceptual videos. The contrast between Fedorova’s voice, even though it’s been transformed through sound engineering, and the mechanical reading provided by the software emphasizes how much meaning inheres in breath, tone, and intimacy when performed “in your voice.” The video is composed of fragmented flowing surfaces which contain images that enhance the experience of the poem, while the music helps shape the tone and pulls the work together by situating the voices within the space evoked by the visuals.
If you really want to lose yourself in these two poems, I suggest viewing it in Vimeo on fullscreen mode with good sound or headphones.
