Jaap Blonk is a composer, voice performer and sound poet. In reciting poetry, especially the works of Antonin Artaud and Kurt Schwitters, he discovered the directness and flexibility of vocal utterance, whether using meaningful words or not. At present, he has developed into a prolific writer/composer and a specialist in the performance of sound poetry, supported by a powerful stage presence and an almost childlike freedom in improvisation. Jaap Blonk keeps on searching the rich common ground between poetry and music. Always after new sounds and combinations of sounds, without abandoning completely the semantics of language, his live performances are music, poetry and performance art all at the same time.
