Album Notes
"Beautiful precise album" - John Berger

THE EDGE OF LETTERS is the first album with poetry by Julyen Hamilton. Having written poetry since childhood and reading live for quite some years now, this album is slightly over due and thoroughly welcomed.

Julyen Hamilton is a prolific writer of poems. His poems reveal themselves in many different places: airplanes, theaters, bars, studios, hotel rooms, distant lands, home. The richness and diversity of approaches and forms are both exciting and moving.

THE EDGE OF LETTERS offers this richness. With the making of the album, the question arose of how to share the poems on a cd. Used to live concerts and even creating poems in live situations, the making of the album brought along the possiblity of a different approach. THE EDGE OF LETTERS found its tone and form through Julyen's own musical input.

The result is 14 tracks of poems read, sung, recorded with or without additional music and a few instrumental pieces. The 15th track is a direct recording of a poem that was created the moment it was being read in a live situation, a typical way of how a poem can come to being in Julyen Hamilton's work.
