Haiku Music Challenge 24

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
Artist: Synkrotron
Genre: electronic, ambient

An immersive and captivating piece by Synkrotron, where guitar and electronic layers merge together to become a fascinating soundscape.

Track: WanderingAlongAStonyPathBesideARiver
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.

Track: Rivers
Artist: Kyosuke Osaku
Genre: electronic

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.
