Welcome to the second iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.
This week we set
the sky slowly regains
by the Bulgarian poet Vessislava Savova. She was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and has published four books so far. Her poems have been included in many Bulgarian and international anthologies, as well as in international magazines in nine languages.
In just seven days, twenty-one music compositions were composed, a record for our music challenge. Here are three of our favorites:
Track: Nightfall Estepario
Artist: Daniel Diaz
Genre: instrumental, soundtrack
A haunting composition by Argentinian composer Daniel Diaz. In Nightfall Estepario electric bass, synth and percussion merge gracefully, creating a suggestive and complex ambient atmosphere.
Track: Slow Regain
Artist: how the night came
Genre: jazz, blues, instrumental
In my opinion the ambient, atmospheric jazz piece Slow Regain by How The Night Came is a perfect fit for this week’s haiku.
Track: Cloud 9 CT
Artist: Corine Bicadeideias
Genre: dance, pop
In contrast with the previous two, the upbeat sounds and elaborated texture of Cloud 9 by Corine Bicadeideias show another interesting sonic interpretation of Vessislava’s haiku.
Next week we’ll be posting music inspired by the following haiku by Madhuri Pillai:
the bush comes alive
with dreamtime stories
