Jaap Blonk 10.26.12 in Seattle, backstage before his Earshot Jazz Festival performance

We caught up with Dutch sound poet and vocal improvisor Jaap Blonk before his Earshot Jazz Festival gig on Friday, October 26, 2012. (Kudos to John Gilbreath and Earshot for presenting this.) We discussed how Blonk got interested in sound poetry, how his vocal improvisation differentiates him from other sound poets, what other sound poets he appreciates (historical and otherwise) and why he thinks people have strong reactions to this kind of art.
