Welcome to the fifth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.
Last week we shared a haiku by Simon Hanson:
the night slips by
a tinted windscreen
Simon Hanson has three collections of poetry: one in free form, another in collaborative renga and most recently an eBook of haiku, Desert Stones, published by Snapshot Press. He is currently secretary of the Australian Haiku Society.
It was hard to choose just three tracks out of the sixteen music submissions made in response to Simon’s poem, but here are the ones I selected this week:
Track: Neon Night
Artist: how the night came
Genre: electro, dance
Author of some of the most interesting ambient piano pieces Naviar has received, this time how the night came surprised us with an electro song, reminiscent of the sounds and soundtracks of the 80s.
Genre: jazz, ambient
As opposed to the previous track, Tinted by SityPhoxx is a calming and introspective journey through the night.
Artist: Kyosuke Osaku
Genre: ambient, drone
The perfect conclusion for our nocturnal journey is Kyosuke Osaku’s Neo, an ethereal ambient composition which evokes a darker and more mysterious realm.
Next week we’ll be posting music inspired by dl mattila’s haiku:
The deadline to submit your track is 20 February. To find out more and participate, visit the Naviar Records site.
