Mashed Poetics

Posted by Daniela Elza on Mar 02 2013

In January I took part in the 13th Mashed Poetics Show. Poets get a song from a selected music album and write to that piece as a point of departure and inspiration. In the mean time local musicians learn to play the album. I got under a month to write a piece to the song assigned, and then perform it on the night with the live music, where the band plays the songs while the poets read the pieces they have written. Here is my piece this is not a rehearsal IV inspired by the song Hey You, from Tragic Kingdom album by No Doubt.
