Haiku Music Challenge 6

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

Last week we shared a haiku by dl mattila:

spring breeze
the orchestration
of wildflowers

dl mattila lives in the USA. She’s the author of Quietus, a collection of poems published by Finishing Line Press. Her work has been published in Downhome Magazine (NL), Shot Glass Journal, and The Rotary Dial (CA), among others.

Here are three songs which were inspired by this beautiful haiku:

Track: the orchestration of wildflowers
Artist: Audio Obscura
Genre: ambient

Here is what Neil aka Audio Obscura said about this immersive ambient piece he composed: “I wanted to build a ‘bed’ of ambience and strings which suggested a flower bed but which nothing dominates, a solo violin sound almost emerges out of the dissonance and hints towards a tune but the wilderness prevails.”

Track: The Orquestration Of Wildflowers
Artist: Daniel Diaz
Genre: electronic, soundtrack

Daniel Diaz recreates the feeling of nature coming back to life after winter, with an evocative instrumental track made for electric piano and synthesizer.

Track: Breeze Orchestrated
Artist: Detritus Tabu3
Genre: instrumental

With this composition, Detritus Tabu3 aims to capture the lively feeling of Spring using just percussions: the result is a wild and joyful piece.

Next week we’ll be posting music inspired by Debbie Strange’s haiku:

transience . . .
petal by petal
we let go

The deadline to submit your track is 27 February. To find out more and participate, visit the Naviar Records site.

  1. Three very innovation and different compositions. I especially liked the percussion. To me it sounded like raindrops falling or flowers emerging from the earth, buds popping open.
