 2017, Culture Pulse,

Here's a set of "spoken weird" compositions with my spoken words over my own music, or over classical compositions corresponding to the text. Track #1 is my rhyming summation of Kafka's "Metamorphosis" over my original music. I used a special effect here to lower my voice as the narrator, Gregor Samsa. Tracks #2 and #5 are just me having some goofy fun: the former resulted from a challenge I was given by a Soundcloud artist to do an Eartha Kitt-ish "good girl to bad" transformation; the latter was a challenge to myself to weave together a narrative using as many pairs of words that appear as if they should rhyme, but in fact have very different pronunciations.

Tracks #3 and #6 are stanzas in limerick format representing a writing phase I went through in the '80s with much of that work published in light verse magazines. The main humor and wit of these pieces involve homophones, so seeing the written text while listening is pretty important to catching the puns. You can always find track descriptions plus lyrics for what I post here at: https://kat330.bandcamp.com/album/words-over-music-spoken-word-tracks.

Tracks #4 and #7 are deadly serious political pieces, the former about #45 for me (and US) and the latter about what we're doing to our environment to affect quality of life for all future generations. Written, arranged, performed and produced by Kathleen Martin 2013-2017.
