About Alan Brunton


To celebrate the publication of Alan Brunton’s Beyond the Ohlala Mountains: Poems 1968-2002, the NZ Electronic Poetry Centre (nzepc) presents a selection of recordings drawn from the Brunton Rodwell Papers at the University of Auckland and from archives of the poet’s many collaborators. Brunton was a consummate performer of his own work, whether poetry, theatre or the many blends he developed between genres and often in association with musicians. Listen to mp3 singles to access the soundtrack of a truly remarkable poetry that is always walking onstage, urgent with news for another audience.
