Welcome to the forty-seventh iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.
Mats Unden is a Swedish visual artist, sound artist, musician, and experimental composer, based in Darwin, Australia. He creates minimal electronica, ambient, and makes noise, with a passion for analogue, modular and vintage synthesizers. Being a visual artist and a printmaker as well, some works end up in performances, videos and installations.
Memories of spring
Fifteen tracks were made in response to Mats’ poem and here are three which I selected this week:
Track: Where I’ll Be Next Spring
Stull has been taking part in the Haiku challenge since 2014, and this week he created a jazz piece inspired by Unden’s haiku.
Mats made an evocative ambient piece in response to his own haiku.
Track: memories always present
Artist: How the Night Came
The final piece is a haunting and melancholic composition by How the Night Came.
Thank you for listening. Next week we’ll be listening to music inspired by a haiku by Aju Mukhopadhyay:
the last kite
carries the setting sun
in its wings
The deadline to submit your track is 26 February. To find out more and participate, please visit the Naviar Records site.
