Mr Albert Pellicer

Lecturer in Modern Languages (Spanish)

About

I am a poet and a lecturer in modern languages (Spanish).  I have taught Spanish and English in Spain and the UK.  I write in English, Catalan and Spanish.

My poetry often explores the margins of text and sound and looks into the concept of 'timbre' in poetry.  My PhD thesis is entitled  "The Sonology Of The Unheard: A Poetics of Timbre"; presented at the Contemporary Poetics Research Centre - Birkbeck University.

I have performed at various locations in the UK, including the International E-poetry Conference, 2005, and have taken part at several international festivals: Festival de Polipoesia (Barcelona, 2006); II International Festival Video Poetry in Buenos Aires (Argentina, 2005), for my piece Word of Mouth; Izmir Poetry Festival  (Turkey, 2015) and at the International Literary Festival in Linares (Mexico, 2015).

I have collaborated with sound artist Ximena Alarcón: 'The Fumigation Of La Luna', performed at: Institute of Creative Technologies, De Montfort University, 2009; ColombiAcústica, University of North Texas and Texas A&M University, 2008.  I have also worked with saxophonist Mark Matsena in 'Journey To Day' and with composer Francisco Coll, 'Óxido: First Repetition', premiered at the Wigmore Hall in 2010, published by Faber & Faber Music.  The film 'Breath of Sense' by filmmaker Helen Petts is based on the translation of my poem researching the whistled language of La Gomera, in The Canary Islands. I have published a verse novel in Catalan and English, 'El Lector de Núvols' - Omnina Books, 2011 and 'Fennec' - Erbacce Press, 2014.
