Michael Peters

Michael Peters is the author of the sound-imaging poem Vaast Bin (Calamari Press) and other
assorted language art and sound works. As certain as he is uncertain of access to “the real,” Peters
frequently tests that periphery with porous, artificial delicacy. Text and digital-based work has
appeared in journals like PEEP/SHOW, Bright Pink Mosquito, Barzakh, unarmed, SleepingFish,
Word for/Word, BathHouse Hypermedia Journal, and Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures, among
others. Visual-poetic manifestations are in avant-garde libraries, special collections, and have
appeared in galleries, journals, and anthologies—The Last Vispo Anthology: 1998 – 2008 is the
most recent. Peters cut his sound-imaging teeth in the rock group Poem Rocket, and continues to
explore sound-imaging in solo performances, installations, and in improvisational collaborations.
He is currently working on a book about sound environment programming—a close study of the
work of Charles Olson, John Cage, Sun Ra, and Jackson Mac Low in the post-1945 moment.
