     {and the} TEXT-ING of SOUND

This provocation is an examination of performative-writing practices, in which ‘expanded-text’ is presented as an infra-disciplinary device par excellence, a duplicity indicative of writing-doing/doing-writing, which in turn is reflected in the promiscuity embedded in performativity. In reiteration of Della Pollock’s incitement that performative-writing is primarily a discursive practice, not a style, I will take this denounced formalism to an uncompromising extreme, locating the text within the work, and the work within the text.
