Halb Buch, halb QR-Code. Mit Maren Kames am Lyriktelefon


The author’s voice is a much-discussed topic in literary and media studies. «Voice» refers to a number of aesthetic phenomena brought about in the reception of a text. The preconditions for this mode of reception have changed since the development of storage media capable of recording actual voices. The poet Maren Kames’ book Halb Taube, halb Pfau attempts to code the author’s voice not only in writing, but also by making use of QR-codes that are included in the book and lead to recordings of her voice. This paper discusses the historic precursors to this invention and its consequences for the notion of reading and the book.
