Musician and friend Willem Cramer kindly put some of my poetry reading to music. I had no input into how Willem interpreted the poetry in order to compose the music, which is probably just as well, given my absence of music ability. Needless to say, I loved his creations, which in turn presented to me level of understanding my own poems. I suppose like all artistic expressions, you let your creation go and it develops a life of its own.
With other poems, I clumsily created my own backing music from downloadable loops or incidental music. While I understand this is not the best way of making a track, in the absence of personal musical talent, it had to be that or nothing. Some might prefer nothing, I'll leave it to the listener to decide.
