"Chanson Tzara" with Lee Harwood by Alexander Baker, 2012


In the early 60’s the poet Lee Harwood heard for the first time, in a London cafe, a poem by Tristan Tzara. An “immediate convert” to Dada, Lee tracked down a few of Tzara’s then difficult to find poems and translated them; he eventually also tracked down Tzara himself and met him in Paris. ‘Chanson Tzara’ is a sound work created around that encounter.
