Torrent description


From the included Info.txt file:

This is a somewhat unique experiment I originally started in 2004. I took recordings of some of my favorite poets (from the 1950s-2000s) and incorporated them into mixes of songs that I felt either fit the mood or added to the theme of the poem being read.

The result is 15 tracks of poets such as Frank O'Hara, Allen Ginsberg, Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, and William Carlos Williams reading their work to the tunes of artists such as The Beatles, Nirvana, Moby, Doris Day, and some lesser known groups. I even included one track that includes a comedy bit by Lenny Bruce set to a Jimi Hendrix song.

The tracks are difficult to describe. I'd say they're similar to mash-ups because they each incorporate two different recordings that were never meant to go together, but they do not contain several songs overlapping each other. I've simply taken a poetry reading and mixed it to music -- therefore, "Poetry Meets Music."
