In a recent interview, Freeman Patterson noted that …

“Any artist in any medium will say that our unconscious self is always two to five years out in front of our conscious self. And we’re photographing or we’re dancing or we’re playing music in a way and doing things with it that we don’t realize – consciously.” 

Enter Daniel Poitras.

This week we’re featuring a piece which sort of masterfully illustrates what the Raving Poets are about.  Kathy Fisher explores the various definitions of the word “stroke”.  In a virtuoso performance, bassist Mark Kozub lays down an accompaniment that will make your jaw drop.  Listen to how this develops musically.  Listen to how Fishy spoons back into the riff and how the performance reaches a synergy that neither alone could have accomplished. In a lot of ways this is exactly what the Raving Poets aim to achieve by combining the spoken word and music.

Once in a blue moon the trajectory of Peter McPhee takes him to Edmonton for a performance at the Kasbar.  We’d like it to happen more often, but trajectories are not something to be trifled with. 

This week Peter performs his piece Cinesia 2.0 accompanied by the amazing Raving Poets band.
