Just did a project with a friend putting music to poetry. It was a huge departure from what I usually play, and it was a great mind openening and inspiring experience. Did it with the guitarist (Randy) from my band and we all collaborated quite nicely - not always the case. I recorded all the pieces in my home studio, and once I learn how to burn CDs w/my new equipment I'm going to post some mp3s of the poetry & music here. We got offered a regular spot in the venue we performed it in. Ain't gonna do it, but it felt nice to get the offer. I haven't checked the poet's website out myself yet (didn't know till yesterday that she had one), but it's www.ryngargulinski.com for anyone interested. I'm gonna go visit now..... Oh yeah, the point behind this whole thing. If anyone is feeling stuck or uninspired, go check out a poetry reading - and bring a pen and pad.
