Singer-songwriter, artist, and PhD researcher Sam Lou Talbot presented a compelling performance of The Shape of Love, an original sound poem inspired by Dadaist Hugo Ball’s 1917 work, Karawana. Talbot displayed her captivating vocals through a series of explorations of ‘O’ vowel sounds. Talbot’s approach to sound, in conjunction with the incorporation of physical gesture and later movement throughout the space, created a highly charged and personal performance which absorbed the audience into her sound world.”Dr Kevin Leomo, composer

Her interpretation of Hugo Ball’s sound poem “Karawana” (1917) sets a new standard for how that poem should be performed. Instead of relying on pure rhythm, she reveals the melodic possibilities of its nonsense syllables.Frank Garrett, translator and critic
