Grand Piano Reading: Episode 10, January 13, 2023

Lyn Hejinian: I was originally scheduled to appear on one of the first GP TV shows and chose to focus on my contribution to GP 5 because of its recurring evocations of the 1978 performance of “A”–24, which was the first explicitly collaborative project undertaken by participants in the Bay Area Language writing scene (although it could be argued that the Grand Piano reading series was itself a collaborative project and preceded the “A”–24 performance by several years). The “A”–24 performance was a beginning of sorts; much grew out of it (including Poetics Journal). It was a beginning with a future, and when I ended up appearing on the final GPTV show, it was the futurity of the collective (and not yet complete) Language writing project writ large that I wanted to celebrate. Sections of my GP 5 essay with a few interpolations added still seemed appropriate to the occasion.
