This is a living archive of rare and underrecognized poetry recordings and antiquefuturisms– often works that explore the role of words as music in very literal, unflinching ways, as well as pieces that understand oration as a primary element of the literary arts. Also cataloged here are elective affinities of such work, and some of the spectral ideologies that make these endeavors possible, impossible (mythic/mythless), and imperative.
