MICHAEL LENTZ IS A SUPREME TEUTONIC SONIC ART GOD WIELDING A CRAFT BLADE WHITTLED TO A FINE DADAIST EDGE OF DISJUNCTIVE SEARING GLOTTAL OOZE.



Michael Lentz does not have a website. his wiki blurb is two lines long. he is rarely translated so if you can't read german you're essentially fucked. but he is legendstuff. he has been 'sploding things for twenty + years: experimental poetry, sound art (read this essay he wrote on lettrism and composition), theory, performance, recently a random novel about Berthold Brecht. i asked him about this novel, about the introduction of a traditional form to a canon of experimental work. he stared at me and said, "THAT IS NOT THE SAME THING.
