about

The 6th Unknown Quantity release, and the 3rd official RPM* Challenge offering (*Record Produced in a Month), "Haiku" is a musical adventure about learning to use logic. Not "logic logic", the DAW Software "Logic".

All of the songs but one follow haiku form, whether they have lyrics or not, so the melodic elements are arranged in 5-7-5, but none of the songs are in 5/8 or 7/8 time.

Two lyric collaborators' work appears on the recording, "Delightful Chaos" was the first-ever haiku penned by Robyn Dyba, and "Alligator Head" was fashioned by Haley Peckman.

Enjoy the music - If you decide to pay anything for it, I will donate it to my local food pantry.

Track Name: Delightful Chaos
by Robyn Dyba

Delightful chaos
Beckons me to join the dance;
I trip and fall in.

We spin ‘til dizzy--
I catch my breath, lose my feet,
And fall out of love.
Track Name: Live Out Loud
Broadcast. Not subtle.
All out, all on, all public
Where is the whisper?

Banter. Unfiltered.
All out, all on, all public
Where is the restraint?
Track Name: Alligator Head
You are wandering
It's a dark, muddy swamp then
Alligator head.
Track Name: Haiku
Five Seven and Five
That's Seventeen Syllables
Five Seven and Five
