SCULPTURE GARDEN cover

Back from our week in North Texas, back to the salt mine, getting the KSE machine up and running for our 2016 set of releases.We still have one album which is technically a 2015 release which we were not able to get out on time, Lisa Cameron and Nathan Bowles’s LIQUID SUNSHINE (KSE #328), which should be released in the next week or so. Watch for it—-as with anything from Lisa Cameron, it’s a stunning and mind-expanding creation. Also, speaking of stunning and mind-expanding, near the end of January, we’ll be releasing the KSE 10th Anniversary compilation album, featuring new and  exclusive pieces by Alfred 23 Harth, Sarah Hennies, Massimo Magee, Brent Fariss, Graham Lambkin, Rambutan, Matt Krefting, Derek Rogers, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, and Vanessa Rossetto….more on that later.

For now, here is our first poetry chapbook of 2016, my  SCULPTURE GARDEN IN THE SNOW, which revives the Creel Pone Sound Study series (this time around, the sound prompt is the 1974 album “Still Live In Concrete” from Ed Herrmann) that’s been on hiatus since 2009 after 10 volumes issued in the 2006-2009 period. We’ll probably revive the series again in the next year or so….it involves close listening to a Creel Pone electronic music release during the development and composition of a poetry chapbook. This one is a poetry-and-photography chap, to some extent, with four pages of text and three related photographs (taken in Opelousas, Louisiana).

SCULPTURE GARDEN is a piece where the energized clusters of text on the open-field page stand out and radiate like pinpoints of light from the scattered farmhouses on the snowbound Midwestern prairie.

The snow collects on the pieces in the sculpture garden, changing them, rebuilding them, redefining them….moments of consciousness, frozen at the end of the proverbial fork.

SCULPTURE GARDEN IN THE SNOW 

And while YOU are stranded at home on those Winter evenings, why not spend some quality time with some of the latest KSE poetry chapbooks. Pour a glass of wine, put on a solo piano album from the late great Paul Bley, and walk through this poetic Sculpture Garden In The Snow.
