Project Main Details

Spoken poetry set against soft background music 
I am producing a spoken word CD of my poetry; a voice narrating each poem (with title) against the backdrop of original music which is often slow and moody. The poetry itself is more in the line of prose, riffing with observations and much in the way of a narrative mould of an observer commenting on what has happened in his own life.

The style of narration is therefore very much free form, in a serious and introspective tone (or where the humour is obvious) in the mould of a character looking back on events in his life from an older age.

Finding the Literal in Moments of Madness

The painted sky tumultuous, curling up under the weight of memory,
Splashes of unconnected paint littering the canvas of life
but things weren’t getting much clearer..

Soaring eagles perched up and then they stared right down at me while I lay there,
And then I felt the tide crawl in, felt the flicker of Bourbon slip through my brain cells

Croaking myself awake with a yawn, finding myself alone
