Haiku Music Challenge 83

Welcome to the eighty-third iteration of the Haiku Music Challenge, hosted by Naviar Records.

John Hinks, aka FlownBlue, is a prolific and talented composer, and a regular participant in the Haiku Music Challenge. 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).

brightens up my mood

Artist: Hard Wired
Genre: electronic

Let’s start with an upbeat electronic composition created by Norfolk-based artist Hard Wired:

Artist: Seramind
Genre: ambient

Track: A white gull glides
Artist: 33per
Genre: electronic

This haunting electronic track by 33per evolves gradually, thanks to the combination of carefully-crafted ambient layers.

is part of the job . . .
