Between Speaking and Singing

Hosted by

This week we visit the shady glen where language and music make out with each other, in a field surrounded by phonemes, intonation, and the throw-away vocables of human expression. What’s important here isn’t what we say, but how we say it.

We talk with artists working at the boundary between language and music: the composer Kate Soper, the poet Jeremy Sigler, and the drummer Milford Graves.


Produced by Jenny Ament, Myke Dodge Weiskopf, Laura Irving, Ross Simonini, Liam Geraghty.
