Haiku Music Challenge 38

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

all alone

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
Genre: classical

Track: 空をあゆむ朗朗と月ひとり
Artist: Merle Bardenoir
Genre: ambient

Track: walking the sky (I am, I exist)
Artist: how the night came
Genre: piano

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.
