He met her in the park

Description: Recording of Charles Dodge's "He met her in the park," poetry by Richard Kostelanetz. The poem consists of a boy-meets-girl story that is told eight times, and the retellings abridged versions of the previous ones, sometimes reversing the gender roles until the final retelling is just "He met her in the park." In the composition, the lines are read by a male and female actor alternating lines and each telling of the story is articulated in a different way. The voices are synthesized with melodies, and over the piece, the voices become understood more like music which echoes the original language.
