I’m the featured reader at the first Tonight it’s Poetry of 2009.
Sunday, January 4, 2009
8:00pm – 10:45pm
259 Second Avenue South
emerging readers are:
and Lisa Johnson
and will feature local multidisciplinary artist/poet Lia Pas.
I’ll be reading from my 3 books, Husk, what is this place we have come to, and vicissitudes, singing a bit, and sharing parts of my film-in-progress, “susurrations”.
The facebook event can be found here.
about the mouth is a cabaret-style concert of new and improvised vocal works. Lia Pas and Helen Pridmore, singers trained in extended vocal techniques, will perform an hour-long concert of compositions written by Lia Pas and John Cage, improv-based scores by Helen Pridmore and Lia Pas, and a bit of Klingon Opera thrown in for good measure.
Please join us at Lydia’s Loft for this exciting evening of drinks and exploration.

I recently returned from an amazing 10-day workshop with Richard Armstrong in Banff. The International Voice Workshops have been running at the Banff Centre for many many years. The last time I attended was in 2001, then worked privately with Richard in NYC in 2002, then he & I kept missing each other through my travels.
My piece “interchange” has been chosen as one of the pieces on the 60×60 Canadian Concert Mix this year. Below is a list of composers and upcoming performances. Continue reading
Please request my entry for this year’s 60×60 project today!
title of piece: interchange
composer: Lia Pas (that’s pronounced “pass” as in “pass the salt please!”)
Husk, a collaborative chapbook project by Ed Pas (who I happen to be married to) and I, is being launched by JackPine Press 18 June 2008 in Saskatoon.
Husk is a being, a voice, a page that turns, a seed, a transformation. In Husk, Ed and Lia Pas have collaboratively created the tale of an uncanny being. Lia’s sound-influenced text and Ed’s surreal drawings recount—with a touch of dark humour—an evocative tale of visceral, organic metamorphosis.
An exquisite object, this book includes eighteen colour images with integrated text, printed on cotton rag paper and bound in a Japanese style with waxed linen thread.
I’m the featured poet this Sunday at the 7th “Tonight it’s Poetry” reading.

I’m very excited to be reading at this year’s League of Canadian Poets event in Saskatoon. My energy is still somewhat low, but is coming back with regular rest breaks throughout the day. Though I’m not up to actually performing yet, a poetry reading is something I feel I can handle. Continue reading
I just got an email from Rob Voisey of Vox Novus about recent updates to the 60×60 site. The most exciting part is an integrated grid of video pieces by Zlatko Cosic mixed especially for the 60×60 Midwest Minutes. My piece between is #40 in the grid. You can work your way through the videos by clicking on them or follow this link to the video for my piece.
