I have podcast the piece below “the gentle art of soft landings’ below this linkage.

I did it in one take with no rehearsal because I wanted to practice live work which I feel kind of fits with the idea of improvisation.

Now I will have to ask Joseph Tawadros for his permission to use the music as a background for the performance. But only if I don’t write a better one for it in the meantime.

  1. if you are using it for ‘performance only’ it is polite to ask permission but not necessary by legalities. if you are using the poem with the borrowed music to generate income, for instance if you included it on a cd of spoken word and then put it out for sale, you need to ask permission. otherwise if the owner objects (what r the odds…) the owner can make a copyright infringement claim against you ie get sued and owe big bucks. but if you only sold 2 or 3 then it would be little bucks however if the artist just didnt like being used with your stuff it can end up costing a lot more than what you might have made on it. copyright 101 class dismissed ha ha

  2. Paul, this is smooth jazz… any chance of a rendition at SpeedPoets this Sunday?
