Welcome to the fourth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.
Last week we shared a haiku by Lorin Ford:
the pull of a planet
Most recently publisher, managing editor, haiku editor and features editor of A Hundred Gourds, Lorin has written haiku since 2004. Her a wattle seedpod (PostPressed, 2008) won a first place in the HSA Merit Book Awards, the first Australian book to do so. Her e-chapbook, A Few Quick Brushstrokes, was a 2011 Snapshot Press winner.
Here are three of our favorite tracks, out of the twenty-four compositions inspired by Lorin’s poem:
Track: dark moon
Genre: piano, electronic
With its improvised piano, minimalist beat and slowly progressing ambient melodies, “dark moon” by Tunnelwater offers a rich and immersive sonic experience.
Track: Dark Moon
Genre: ambient, space music
Clearly inspired by the electronic moods and atmospheres of the late seventies and early eighties, Ibehre’s submission is classic space music at its best.
Artist: Robert Knote
The final piece of this selection is a one-minute classical composition by German composer Robert Knote.
Next week we’ll be posting music inspired by Simon Hanson’s haiku:
the night slips by
a tinted windscreen
The deadline to submit your track is 13 February. To find out more and participate, visit the Naviar Records site.
