Playing with Words: the spoken word in artistic practice is a 
collection of responses from over 40 leading contemporary 
composers and artists who have been invited to represent 
aspects of their creative practice with words, and in particular, 
the spoken word, for the printed page. 
The book concentrates on the kinds of creative play to be found 
in different sound based genres such as electroacoustic music 
composition, text sound composition, and sound poetry, while 
reflecting artistic practices in disciplines such as digital arts, 
electronic, concrete and experimental poetry, performance art 
and fine art. 
The contributors have chosen to represent their work in a 
variety of ways which include writing, graphics, poetry, 
photographs and through interview.
