Over the last few months we’ve been in and out of the studio working to set the poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay to music. The recordings are a mesh of carefully plotted out songs, as well as our recordings of first encounters with poems of Edna’s. Poems are teachers and friends. They are pathways to discovery. Illuminations of the world as it is, and what it could become. There is nothing quite like the discovery of a new poem that truly moves you. In that vein, it has been an unexpected delight to record what, in some cases is a first encounter with a poem I know will be a teacher for a long time to come.
We’ll be posting new tidbits here for you to encounter along with us, as we’re finishing up this album and figuring out the best way to share it with you.
