and collaborative soundscapes" are what are promised here and this
is exactly what "Fragments of the Hole" delivers. Due to lack
of bio info on William Willard, all that I can say is that he appears
to be a socio-politically oriented spoken word artist and is closely associated
with the Zdefekt crew (some of whom contribute soundscapes and treatments
to this release).
Willard's text focuses on the shortcomings of modern Ameican society.
He rants on consumerism, environmentalism, classism, isolationism - anything
that can be pointed to as a polarising factor in our society. He organises
and expresses his ideas well. He doesn't break any new ground. Nor does
he shake any old trees. This is not twenty-first century Last Poets or
anything like that. Williard's delivery is not imposing enough to be the
rock the oppressed masses can rally around. And the message is more journalistic
than diagnostic. Still, he is a voice where there can never be too many
voices. A timely, fresh jolt of awareness.
