In 1976, my solo vinyl record “Phonopoetica” was released by Belgrade’s Student Cultural Center, featuring phonic poetry in my vocal interpretation. This record attracted considerable attention from the most significant contemporary authors of phonic and visual poetry, like Henri Chopin, Bernard Heidsieck, Jean-Jacques Lebel, François Dufrêne, Tibor Papp, Jackson Mac Low, Bob Cobbing, Jerome Rothenberg, Charlie Morrow, Brion Gysin, George Quasha etc. who invited me to international festivals of avant-garde and phonic poetry. Before that, I had been involved with visual poetry for quite a while. My visual poetry was exhibited in galleries and used for conceiving scores for phonic poetry performances.
