About

Southland Ensemble presents the chance poetry of Jackson Mac Low. Mac Low’s dedication to systems of composition - which included chance, indeterminacy, and simultaneous performance - allowed him to create works of extreme openness. His poems represent a moment in poetry where truths of authorship were called into question and the very boundaries of music and poetry were pulled taut.

 

“I myself think that if it is a connection and it does something, it’s some kind of cause but it’s different from the time-linear cause going from past to future. It’s across any present, between any two things coexisting. ... And I think that one thing that systematic chance does allow... is for something to happen on that synchronous plane.” - Jackson Mac Low

 

Featuring:

54th Light Poem: For Ian Tyson

Is That Wool Hat My Hat

Young Turtle Asymmetries

Tree Movie

Numbered Asymmetries
