The Dada intermedia artist Kurt Schwitters' epic Ursonate is arguably the great sound poem to emerge from various experimental art movements of the early 20th century. Structured in a classic four-movement sonata form, the work explodes language and recasts the fragments as a primal verbal music of disjointed syllables and phonemes.
