Description - Eardrum: Poems and Prose about Music by Martin Langford

Eardrum moves across a much wider range of musical possibilities than is normally the case: from Ariana Grande at Manchester to the man who plays Hornsby Fountain in his Wellington boots; from the way music has been used to inspire terror, and signify power, to the way rock has been grounded in the word, and jazz in the body.

As well as the main body of poems, there is a section of very brief pieces - Langford is also an aphorist - and a series of prose meditations: on the links between music and poetry, and on various aspects of jazz, classical and rock.

Praise for Martin Langford:
'Often intellectually profound, the poetry remains assured and clear, a pleasure to read and re-read...' - Jan Owen

'One of Australia's leading poets' - Peter Kirkpatrick
