              This book explores the relationship between words and music in contemporary texts, examining, in particular, the way that new technologies are changing the literature-music relationship. It brings an eclectic and novel range of interdisciplinary theories to the area of musico-lit...erary studies, drawing from the fields of semiotics, musicology, psychoanalysis, music cognition, emotion and affect, cosmopolitanism, globalization, ethnicity, and biraciality. Chapters range from critical analyses of the representation of music and the musical profession in contemporary novels, to examination of the forms and cultural meanings of contemporary intermedia and multimedia works. The book theorizes cross-culturality in the word and music relationship, arguing that crossings between words and music create emergent structures and meanings that can facilitate forms of cultural crossing, particularly transnationalism and cross-cultural exchange. The convergence of these formal and cultural crossings is conceptualized as musico-literary miscegenation, using interracial sexual relationships as a metaphor. Smith also inspects the dynamics of improvisation and composition, and the different ways they intersect with performance. Further, the book explores the huge changes that computer-based real-time algorithmic text and music generation are making to the literature-music nexus. This volume provides fascinating insight into the relationship between literature and music, and will be of interest to those fields as well as New Media and Performance Studies.

              Hazel Smith's new poetry collection engages in a direct way with contemporary political and social issues - civil war and the flight of populations, oppressive regimes and the disappearance of dissidents, the unpredictable effects of climate change - relating these issues to the ...personal experience of death and dementia, abuse and disability and childlessness. The poems project intense psychological states of indecisiveness, anxiety, disorientation and guilt, making use of surreal conjunctions and metaphor to dramatise the sense of unease. Smith is a new media artist and musician, and the poems employ a variety of techniques drawn from these fields, flourishes of linguistic coloratura, the evocation of virtual realities, cutting and pasting from the internet, remixing, sampling and quotation, to drive home their effects.

Ecliptical includes prose poetry and short p...rose; texts that are synaesthetic, sonic or linguistic explorations, surreal excursions and 'bullet point' adventures in which each line unveils a new observation. Other pieces employ non-literary forms or include documentary or remixed elements. Ecliptical also flirts with the posthuman in some collaborative computer-assisted poems.
