Welcome to the tenth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.
This week we treat the following haiku by Lee Rosevere:
The heart is a fool,
Never learns what it can’t have
One of the earliest participants in the Naviar Haiku challenge, Lee Rosevere is a music-maker, film score composer, and founder of the Canadian label Happy Puppy Records. A track by Lee was also included in our latest anniversary compilation 5 Years of Naviar Haiku.
Nineteen compositions were inspired by Lee’s haiku, and here are three which I selected for you:
Artist: Unstable Time
Still by Austrian composer Unstable Time is a simple yet absorbing piano piece. With its hypnotic melody, the composition perfectly fits with the melancholic atmosphere of Lee’s haiku.
Track: Mystery Heart
Artist: Ed Mundio
Australian artist Ed Mundio focused on the more mysterious aspect of the haiku: the inscrutability of feelings.
Track: Fool’s Hope
CHILD didn’t participate in the Haiku challenge for a while and I’m happy he’s back this week. His music is timeless and mesmerizing, and Fool’s Hope is a perfect example of it.
Thank you for listening. Next week we’ll be posting music inspired by Corine Timmer’s haiku:
The falling tide
tugs at my dream
The deadline to submit your track is 27 March. To find out more and participate, please visit the Naviar Records site.
