Haiku Music Challenge 69

Welcome to the sixty-ninth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.

I’m always excited when I have the chance to share a poem written by a regular participant in our music challenge. The haiku of the week is by John Hinks (aka FlownBlue), a prolific and talented composer who since last year has been participating in the Haiku Music Challenge almost every week. Aside from his solo project, John is also involved in three improvising duos: Windfall Light (with Jim Tetlow), Abstract Blue (with Kevin Buckland) and Light Fragments (with Steve Escott).

But waking I find

a chill November morning

Fifteen tracks were inspired by John’s poem, and here’s my selection for The Haiku Foundation:

Track: a chill november morning
Artist: Daniel Diaz
Genre: electronic

Multi-instrumentalist Daniel Diaz composed a beautiful and immersive sonic experience inspired by John’s haiku.

Track: Magnolia
Artist: Rocco Saviano, Henrik Meierkord & Marco Lucchi
Genre: electroacoustic

Here’s a collaboration between 3 extremely talented artists.

Rocco Saviano: electric guitar
Henrik Meierkord: cello and double bass
Marco Lucchi: analog synth

Track: magnolia in full bloom . . .
Artist: Tunnelwater
Genre: ambient

I love Tunnelwater’s electronic soundscapes, and in my opinion this is one of his finest creations.

Thank you for listening. Next week we’ll be listening to music inspired by Michael Dudley:

gusts of ghosts

  1. Magnolia is peaceful. I hear the sound of icecycles breaking and the surprise of Magnolia blossom on a cold autumn day.
