Zoae Arts presents Poetry in Music at the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery in NYC). Doors open at 7pm, tickets are $10 at the door.
There is power in a single spoken word. Music is also a power that moves the soul. “Poetry In Music” is poetry in motion to music and the marriage between the two.
Singer/Songwriters Brooke Campbell & Jason Harrod will be joined by poets L.L Barkat & Maxidus to present this unique approach of words and song to New York City at the Bowery Poetry Club (http://www.bowerypoetry.com/). This special evening is brought to you by Zoae Arts (http://zoaearts.com/)!
From out of chaos and anticipation, words are spoken. Silence… Poetry alone is given in its rawest and purest form. As the poems continue and the poets alternate turns, music emerges! Musicians from the first performer’s band will begin to weave into the words with improvisation of what the poet is presenting, interacting with and reacting to words. As the poets interchange, musicians will one by one add to the setting until all is filled with full sounds and words. Once all band members are up, the first set has begun with Brooke Campbell opening for the night. “Poetry In Music” will then escalate with roughly the same process and conclude with a performance by Jason Harrod to close the event.
There just may be further surprises that these artists have to offer with special features that unite the poetry to the music.
