EXCERPT FROM 'RATTLE'
"...We rattle along believing in peace, trying to believe in peace, looking for a smile between the safety of the footpath and some place we call home.
We rattle because we are made of moments too many to hold fast..."
Dictation of thought – Writing for the surreal: Learn to find clarity in the aesthetic of the absurd through the practice of automatic writing and other surrealist techniques - cut-up’s, automatic drawing, surrealist games. Put your conscious mind aside for a night and set course for the source of the imagination where dreams and desires reside.
Between these pages there is love, lust and beauty, the mechanics of human behaviour, the challenges of simple existence and of course, the art of creative thinking. They are all stripped naked and drummed out on the page to the rhythm of this authors exploration into thought.
WHAT IS STREET POETRY?
Spontaneous poems are composed with a typewriter on a subject of the participant's choice, followed by an intimate reading. My aim through 'Street Poetry' is to broaden the delivery platform and experience of poetry to provide greater access to this still relevant art-form.
I have developed music specifically to accompany my live performances, composed mostly using found sounds to create music that reflects the spontaneity and rhythms of my writing.
