The Dictators & other sound poems

November 8, 2011 in News

For three euros you can be the proud owner of 30 sound poems (which comes to a whooping ten cents a piece), written, composed and performed by me, Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl. For four euros more you can get a physical CD (home-burned with a nice cover) – including delivery costs. The CD features a series of poems about dictators and (anti-) heroes, avant nail-soups, finnish horrorpoems, Icelandic-American national poetry, crisis sonnets, selected blenderbenders, scandinavian tomfoolery and 17th century pastoral insanity from Icelandic poet farmers. You’ll find the list of poems below. They are mostly in Icelandic (but being sound poems it mostly doesn’t matter much) – with some english and finnish. Below that you’ll find a paypal button (all major credit cards and all that jazz) – choose download (a .zip file carrying 30 mp3′s) or download AND cd. If you want the CD signed just write to me at kolbrunarskald@norddahl.org when you’ve ordered.

Here you can here a couple of the poems on the CD performed live at the Days of Poetry and Wine in Slovenia last august.
