Chris King is creative director of Poetry Scores, an international arts organization based in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S., that translates poetry into any and all other media.
Poetry Scores' most recent movie, "Go South for Animal Index," a filmic translation of the poem by Stefene Russell, was selected to screen at the 2014 Uranium Film Festival at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
His own poetry, published in two chapbooks and in small magazines all over the world, is being translated into Russian by Kanat Omar. In 2002, he was the Visiting Artist at the Art Department at the University of Hawaii - Hilo, where he is writing poetry-based multi-media curricula with the painter and printmaker Michael Marshall.
In the 1990s he led the American insurgent country bands Enormous Richard and Eleanor Roosevelt, whose records remain in digital print. He also is the author of a novel, music memoir, and work of creative non-fiction that remain, unhappily, unpublished.
