Welcome to the thirty-eighth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.
Ogiwara Seisensui was a Japanese haiku poet active during the Taishō and Showa periods of Japan. He started the school of free haiku which Ozaki Hōsai and Taneda Santoka popularized. In 1911 Seisensui, with the support of Kawahigashi Hekigodo (1873-1937), founded the literary magazine Soun.
Walking the sky
a clear moon
Eighteen tracks were made in response to Ogiwara Seisensui’s poem, and as always I have selected three favorites for the THF community:
Track: clear moon
Artist: Robert Knote
Artist: Merle Bardenoir
Track: walking the sky (I am, I exist)
Artist: how the night came
Thank you for listening. Next week we’ll be listening to music inspired by a haiku by Kawahigashi Hekigoto:
The light snow.
The ice without any trace
On the lake.
The deadline to submit your track is 20 November. To find out more and participate, please visit the Naviar Records site.
