With contributions from 23 poets, 3 engineers, and over 30 musicians, Pink Thunder presents a musical and lyrical experiment by award-winning songwriter / composer Michael Zapruder, to see what happens when poems are sung instead of spoken. Potent with weird, funny, and singular possibilities, Pink Thunder's playful and startling songs take their form entirely from the shape of the poems from which they are made. The result is a collection of musical readings both compelling and surprising. You are invited to listen.
This pink vinyl 7' contains 4 songs, from poems by Joshua Beckman, Gillian Conoley, Brett Fletcher Lauer, Anthony McCann, Travis Nichols, and Matthew Zapruder.
