Shannon Ebner, Susan Howe, Nathaniel Mackey – Stray: A Graphic Tone


This recording features works by American poets Susan Howe and Nathaniel Mackey, as produced by visual artist Shannon Ebner. Juxtaposing historic and recent material from 1991–2018, the work brought together here examines the two writers’ lifelong preoccupation with subjects adrift in narratives of dispossession, both real and imagined. Liner notes contain excerpts of original interviews as well as reproductions of published materials by Howe and Mackey. The fourteen-track record is the full-length version of what Ebner started in 2016, when she began seeking exchanges with the two poets. She was drawn to their works for their experiments in poetic form.
