"The Sonosopher" is the tentative title of a full-length, feature documentary film that is currently in production. This film will document the life and creative works of poet, polyartist, sonosopher, scholar, teacher, mentor...Alex Caldiero. The documentary and this blog are a portion of a greater, ongoing effort to record, document, and archive Alex's life and works.

2nd day in NYC, feels like 2nd week! (lots to do, lots of walking)

Click image to enlarge it. We filmed some awesome performatives (poems/performances) at the school with Alex (both digital with the DVX and 8MM film!). Richard Kostelanetz is a great, long-time scholar of Avant-Garde art/artists and has written on Alex's performance and written poetry. Specifically, Richard included Alex in his incredibly ambitious document "A Dictionary of the Avant-Gardes", and his anthology on sound poetry "Text-Sound Texts". Follow the links above to learn more about Richard (whom we interviewed today for the documentary!), the dictionary that Alex is included in, and the anthology that Alex is included in.
