The album is a sonic response to modernity and the impact the industrialised west is having on the "developing" world.

She had missing fingers, no nose and was very badly burned and scarred. She is the "Girl without a face". She was about 12. We felt a terrible guilt - gave her a...

A class on Robert Creeley taught by Warren Tallman in 1991 at Naropa. Tallman's role in the San Francisco Renaissance put him in contact with many authors that shaped the later 20th century, including Charles Olson and Allen Ginsberg, which gives him a unique perspective on the poetry and life of Robert Creeley. In this class Tallman discusses Creeley's poems Kore, The Gift, and Somewhere.

Warren Tallman contrasts the attitude toward language of the poets of the modern period (which he defines as spanning 1600 to 1900) and those of the postmodern period (spanning in his definition 1900 to the present), and prophesies the imminent return of "personal poetry" to the fore. Using examples from Chaucer, Yeats and Donne, Tallman proposes that consonants lead the mind to speech, while vowels lead it to song.
