‘A blend of Food and Liquor,
Madvillainy jazz standard figures,
Cayotes in hiatus howling over butterflies in mazes.
Through this voice we try to capture the rapture of Robert Glasper.
This is the Poetry Experiment,
Our name is self-evident,
We bring you music and spoken word for betterment
Like soul food,
It’s soulful,
It’s so full of sweet melodies-
The instrumentals of our childhood memories.
We reside on the corner of what you knew
And thought possible;
The roads less travelled
But more followed...’
This is a new artistic project blending spoken word poetry with the sounds of neo-soul, hip-hop, jazz and electronic music. We draw heavily from the musical styles of Robert Glasper, Kendrick Lamar, Terrace Martin and Hiatus Kayiote, as well as the poetry of Noname, Nick Makoha and Gill-Scott Heron.
Having met at a Durham arts event called Thorn in November as separate acts, we got talking and decided to work together to come up with something that would be a little unique. After several months and jamming sessions, we’ve created an original set that deals with topics of responsibility, childhood, race, religion and hope over a variety of sounds, tempos, flows and melodies.
