A few hours before her public reading on 14 February, poet Mel Nichols recorded a short set at the home of Steve Evans and Jennifer Moxley. Here are a half-dozen tracks from that session, recorded at the dining room table on a pretty good microphone attached to a pretty cheap tape player, then digitized using Garageband, iTunes, and Audacity.
Voice Over (0:39)
Day Poem: I kiss you, city… (0:40)
Day Poem: Earth breathing fireworks…. (1:07)
Sur le neige (0:39)
Notes from the Forest (2:30)
