Inspired by orchestral pop music and the musical qualities of the human speaking voice as demonstrated by great artists like Gil Scott-Heron, Rebecca has gathered an amazing team of talented people to help her develop poems into an experimental, multi-media experience of music and video.
Like a quilt, this project brings together a myriad of talents and influences to make something new, while finding "backing" with the Psalms as inspiration.
As a healing quilt wraps around those with bodily afflictions, Rebecca hopes that her music will wrap around the hearts and minds of those who hear it. For those in spaces of emotional, mental, and spiritual pain, SOUND QUILT is intended to offer comfort, healing, catharsis, or an acknowledgment that they are not alone. Given the brokenness of our world, the artist acknowledges that we need spaces to be “not okay.” Only allowing grief creates the opportunity for healing.
The videos are made. All that remains is to record our music and bring the two elements together. Be on the lookout for their upcoming releases!
The financial goal and dates for this campaign are not yet decided upon, but we hope to professionally record the song-poems that make up Sound Quilt's first project "Something Different."
