Poetry and music are more closely related than we think.
And there is something to be said to those who combine literature, poetry & music… for they are following a tradition as we know from history; when the great bards were performing their poetry it would be accompanied by music. Stemming from poetry, to spoken word, to rap and progressing to various forms of hiphop: we find words drenched in melody and dipped in sound in the depths of underground electronica.
We find Joy & Sparks
… And we (of course) ask her to come in and showcase her mixture of electronic texture and oscallating literature. Because not only is the poet a muse to the composer, but vice versa.
Joy & Sparks has finally bitten the proverbial bullet and started producing under her own moniker. With her eyes set firmly on collaborating with any spirit she deems ‘authentic & honest’, she’s now finding her own sound in the aural sea and she’s not afraid to share her empathic and deeply grounded philosophy with you. Her live show, (which featured at Strawberry Fields, Rainbow serpent, OzAsia Festival and WomAdelaide) consists of triggering her own productions while layering and looping her siren calls to audiences who cannot be anything other than present within her seduction. This young woman is one who keeps her head in the clouds but her feet firmly rooted to the earth.
