Haiku Music Challenge 26

Welcome to the twenty-sixth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.

It seems that many members of our community got hooked on Talk to Transformer! Here’s a haiku written by our friend Corine Timmer using the AI software. Corine lives in the countryside in the south of Portugal: she is an interior designer, animal lover, haiku poet, and a self-published author.

a bright star

in a moonless sky —

gentle breeze

Corine’s poem inspired nineteen tracks, and here are three I selected this week for you:

Track: moonless
Artist: How the Night Came
Genre: electronic

This guitar piece by How the Night Came makes a perfect fit for the haiku it’s inspired by, as it combines peaceful guitar melodies and carefully crafted ambient textures into a short cinematic experience.

Track: A Bright Star
Artist: GHel Haiku
Genre: ambient

By alternating quiet moments with simple, enigmatic melodies and crescendos, GHel seems to be capturing the mood and solitude of a lone space traveler.

Track: A Bright Star
Artist: Scott Lawlor
Genre: ambient

This 10-minute ambient track by Scott Lawlor is cinematic space music at its best, reminiscent of the Tangerine Dream’s electronic experiments of the early 70s.

Thank you for listening. Next week we’ll be listening to music inspired by a haiku by Kobayashi Issa:

a clear waterfall

into the ripples

fall green pine needles

The deadline to submit your track is 17 July. To find out more and participate, please visit the Naviar Records site.
