The spoken word has always struck me as inherently musical.  I'm fascinated by the sounds of words, their natural songs and symmetries, and always write from this place. I've used this approach to make Hip Hop, Jazz, House, Ambient, Punk, and all sorts of weird experimental bits in between. Poetry has always felt to me like the most privileged solo instrument - the most dynamic, diverse and delicate of the orchestra. I'm forever curious as to where this might lead us.
