Edited by Cathy Lane, 'Playing with words' is an anthology of works from over forty leading contemporary sound artists and composers who use words, particularly spoken words, as their material and inspiration. Each invited contributor has responded with a work for this edition, revealing a rich variety of artistic approach and exploration of the spoken and written word communicated through sound poetry, interviews, creative writing, visual-textual pieces and performance scores.
