Pairing spoken word poetry with bespoke audio environments The Soundscape Poetry Project showcases thirteen exhilarating new performances. Through collaborations with poets, musicians and producers, this ground-breaking album pushes the boundaries of how poetry can be experienced and sets a new standard for the future of recorded spoken word.
The project features work by five of the UK’s most innovative and exciting poets: Rachael Boast, Kirsten Irving, Safiya Kamaria Kinshasa, Malaika Kegode (performing with Jakabol) and Tim Turnbull.
The album is available alongside two limited-edition artists’ books that chart the story of the project through personal photographs, original artwork provided by Wotadot, and all thirteen poems laid out in their printed form. A special limited-edition 12” of The Soundscape Poetry Project pressed to green, numbered vinyl will be available for pre-order.
