Welcome to the twenty-fourth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.
Jamie Lickfold aka sevenism generated some haiku using Talk to Transformer, a neural network capable of completing texts. The results were fascinating so I chose one of those poems for this week’s challenge. Sevenism is one of the earliest participants in the Haiku Challenge, as well as the first artist to publish a solo album with Naviar.
I’m on the shore of a river
on some rocky path, on a hillside
my way home
Jamie’s haiku inspired nineteen compositions. Below are the three tracks I selected this week:
Track: Hillside Path
Genre: electronic, ambient
An immersive and captivating piece by Synkrotron, where guitar and electronic layers merge together to become a fascinating soundscape.
Artist: Ed Mundio
Genre: instrumental, field recording
Ed Mundio is an expert in combining field recordings with subtle ambient textures, and his submission this week is a perfect example of his skills as sound sculptor.
Artist: Kyosuke Osaku
Kyosuke’s track has a nostalgic feel to it. It’s a quiet and absorbing study for ambient sounds and field recording.
Thank you for listening. Next week we’ll be listening to music inspired by a haiku by me, Marco Alessi:
When I gazed down the ocean,
I could see with amazement
The countless lights that shone
The deadline to submit your track is 3 July. To find out more and participate, please visit the Naviar Records site.
