Rhombus 19

The group Rhombus 19 does original pieces and covers of classics in sound & experimental poetry.
Rhombus 19: Poetry-in-Performance Ensemble is a loose association of students and faculty from the University of Ottawa’s Department of English. We do translations of visual concrete poetry, ‘covers’ of sound and other experimental works, along with original compositions. Our goal is to promote collective forms of joyful human expression, whether semantic or non-semantic.
