Pages Loading by Eric Schmaltz

Published in a limited edition of 40 copies (only 20 of which are for sale), Pages Loading is available for $2.00 including domestic postage (+ $1 non-Canadian postage). To order please email derek beaulieu.

Pages Loading explores the transient & frequent instances of textual transmutation in digital reading environments. As code & meta-data become vernacular, fugitive obfuscation manifests as blurry, pixelated, and nebulous digital pages. Pages Loading captures these interstitial moments, observing the commonplace linguistic disruption of the e-reader interface.

This poem isolates letters from page 98 of NASA’s voice transcription of the Apollo 11 moon mission, uncovering (in sequential order) the musical notes of two chorus lines from Harry Dacre’s “Daisy Bell” (“A Bicycle Built for Two”). These chorus lines famously appear as the death knell of the computer HAL in Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Ken Hunt is the author of Space Administration (89+/LUMA Foundation, 2014). For three years, Ken served as editor of NōD Magazine, the University of Calgary English department’s publication of undergraduate prose, poetry, and visual art. In 2010, Ken co-founded The Scribe and Muse, a University of Calgary club that promotes writing and literacy, offering a free peer-editing service to students across all faculties.

from SIGINT by Ken Babstock

Published in a hand-bound edition of 80 copies (only 40 of which are for sale), from SIGINT is available for $3 including domestic postage (+ $2 non-Canadian postage). To order please email derek beaulieu.

These sonnets “occur” inside the abandoned NSA Surveillance station on the summit of Teufelsberg (Devil’s Mountain) in Berlin, Germany. A manmade mountain, Teufelsberg is the result of the Allies’ decision to pile massive quantities of the postwar rubble of Berlin on top of an SS Engineers’ College, designed by Albert Speer, and left unfinished after the war. The poem makes use of diction adapted from Walter Benjamin’s records of his son’s language acquisition between the ages of 2 and 6. The italicized “incident reports” that appear in lieu of a traditional sonnet’s closing couplet point to collisions between light aircraft and common swifts in what would have been Soviet air space.

Ken Babstock’s first collection in 1999, Mean, won him the Milton Acorn Award and the 2000 Atlantic Poetry Prize. Babstock worked as Poetry Faculty at the Banff Centre for the Arts and currently lives in Toronto. Babstock’s collection, Airstream Land Yacht, won the Trillium Book Award, was shortlisted for the 2007 Canadian Griffin Poetry Prize, and was nominated for the 2006 Governor General’s Award for poetry. Babstock’s most recent collection, Methodist Hatchet, won the 2012 Canadian Griffin Poetry Prize.

Speechless magazine – the journal of concrete poetry i edited and published from 2009 (and is now readily available on UBUweb as downloadable PDFs) was recently re-issued in a pirated edition by Kristen Mueller as poet-in-residence at the LUMA foundation in Zurich. I’m thrilled to hear that my work is being pirated and bootlegged, what could be cooler than that?

Documentary Poetry by Heimrad Bäcker

with “Afterword: A Past Charged with Now-Time” by Sabine Zelger

In a Bilingual edition, translated by Jacquelyn Deal and Patrick Greaney.

Published in a hand-bound edition of 80 copies (only 40 of which are for sale), Documentary Poetry is available for $12+postage ($15 total). To order please email derek beaulieu.

“Documentary literature cuts through the skeins of imagination, paralyzes the literary impulses of the will, makes secondary reflection into an unnecessary addition, and negates remembrance ceremonies’ formulaic horror; documentary literature suffers no reduction in efficacy by repeated usage, makes visible that which is hidden by public and private mediocrity and its schematizing tendencies.”

Documentary Poetry presents the principles that guided Bäcker’s writing practice. It is one of the longest texts in poetics that he published during his lifetime.

Heimrad Bäcker (1925–2003) was an artist, poet, and influential editor of the Austrian avant-garde. He is the author of seven volumes of poetry, including transcript (Dalkey Archive Press, 2010) and Seascape (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2013). He published major works by Austrian artists and experimental writers in his journal neue texte (1968–1991) and under the imprint of Edition Neue Texte (1976–1992), the publishing house that he ran along with his wife Margret Bäcker. Most of his literary works draw on the methods of concrete and visual poetry to present documentary material about the Shoah. These books were historical and literary, and they were also part of a critical autobiography, an examination of Bäcker’s enthusiastic participation in the Hitler Youth and the Nazi Party.

Heimrad Bäcker’s “Dokumentarische Dichtung” was first published in the Vienna literary journal Protokolle, 29.2 (1992). This reprint and translation have been authorized by Thomas Eder, Bäcker’s literary executor. The translation was supported by a grant from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Art, and Culture.
