A former union organizer and multi-media artist, Wolach's work often begins as site-specific and interactive performance and ends up as shaped, written language. Critical work on the poetics of spatial practice and the body has appeared most recently in Jacket and Sibila: Poesia y Cultura (Brazil). He's currently at work with composer Arun Chandra on a 4-channel sound-text composition for four voices, a set of pieces which includes "modular arterial cacophony" from Occultations. Wolach is professor of text arts, poetics, and aesthetics at The Evergreen State College, and visiting professor in Bard College's Workshop In Language & Thinking.
