Still I Rise

How can we visualise performance? Can we see the energy or cadence of the spoken word?

In written text, emotion can only be imagined or interpreted through punctuation, however, the spoken word immediately holds more power. Using my website, Seeing Sound, I have highlighted the cadence a poet uses in their work and emphasised how they intended their words to be heard, here shown in the performance of ‘Still I Rise’ by Maya Angelou, where I hope to capture the energy of her words.
