Crown Prince Of Rabbits

What began as a writing aid prescribed by the poet and musician Shira E ended up becoming its own project. In 2015, as part of a writing course taught by Shira, I began composing music using GarageBand, other free software and some borrowed instruments. Eventually I conceived the idea of composing original music for every poem in the book, and releasing a standalone album. I spent the next year recording and composing at home, using found objects, traditional instruments, is software programming skills, and purchased software like Ableton Live and Logic to create the unique, experimental music to which I read every poem in the collection.
