Combining words and music to create new digital interactions with poetry.

Songs For Spoken Words is a collection of instrumental music and poems. There are six songs, each lasting a couple of minutes.

When you view a song, you’ll hear music and see words appear on your screen.

While listening to the music, read the words. Follow their rhythm, emphasis (italics, boldness and text size) and the flow of the animation (soft, hard, slow, fast).

Listen to your inner voice as you read. You are part of the performance – bringing the words to life as you lift them from the screen.
