The Soundscape Poetry Project
Building on the UK’s rich history of spoken word poetry, The Soundscape Poetry Project has created audio spaces to showcase poems and performances through the complementary use of sound and music.
By pairing poetry with bespoke audio landscapes, we aim to encourage people to interact with spoken word poetry in a surprising and original way.
In 2020, we ran a kickstarter campaign and launched a new competition to discover a New Voice in Poetry. We have been working with the competition winner Safiya Kamaria Kinshasa as well as established poets Rachael Boast, Kirsten Irving, Malaika Kegode and Tim Turnbull to record their voices and set them to aural accompaniment.
Culture Recordings are proud to launch The Soundscape Poetry Project as a limited edition 12” vinyl record, packaged alongside an accompanying illustrated book containing detailed information about the work and the artists involved. The package is also available digitally directly from Culture Recordings and to stream via popular services.
