ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
At the Edge of the Body's Night are settings of poems by the Pulitzer Prize winning poet Mark Strand. Strand's poetry has had a very profound and powerful impact on me and his ability to juxtapose ideas, thoughts and images is truly magical. These poems inspired compositions of contrasting motives and phrases. In Sleep and The Room, I have explored dark and compressed sonorities in the guitar creating an aural landscape that frames the transparent voice of the soprano. At the Edge of the Body's Night is a setting of Strand's Seven poems, seven haiku like poems that I have sets as six separate pieces each capturing a distinct mood and atmosphere suggested by the character and emotion in these words.
