Haiku Music Challenge 75

Welcome to the seventy-fifth iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.

Mizuta Masahide was a 17th-century Japanese poet and samurai who initially studied under Shohaku, but later became a disciple of Basho.

hidden among the trees —
a shrine with mice and

red leaves on the ground

Twenty tracks were inspired by Masahide’s haiku, and here’s my selection for The Haiku Foundation:

Let’s start with the most upbeat track of the week, written by Daniel Diaz for charango, flutes, vibraphone, percussion and upright bass.

Track: Red Leaves On The Ground
Artist: Agnostura Elvar

Ingvar aka Agnostura Elvar will be taking a break for our music challenge to focus on a new project. His farewell track is a gradual crescendo of guitars and electronic elements.

Track: A Shrine Amongst The Trees
Artist: ikjoyce

Here’s a mesmerizing composition by Ian Joyce: subtle ambient layers merging together to create a powerful ambient soundscape.

I now own a better view

of the rising moon
