Product details

The haiku and micro poetry by Kobayashi Issa and Susan Sleepwriter inspire Everything I Touch. Kobayashi Issa was a 19th century Japanese poet and lay Buddhist priest known for his haiku poems and journals. He is better known as simply Issa, a pen name meaning Cup-of-tea. Susan Sleepwriter is a Sydney-based poet who loves words used concisely; words that paint a scene, that leave behind the scent of emotion, that expose the human struggle.
All of this inspiration for a composer!
The very essence of music is its quality of 'being in the moment' yet a physical score is a blueprint for the past, present and the future. Issa's haiku and Sleepwriters' micropoetry are simply about what is happening in this place at this moment.
The listeners are invited to form their own experience of the poems through
the medium of sound.
