Songs of Sacred Self

Texts by Jarod K. Anderson

voice (C4–A5), cello, piano | $30.00

I came across Jarod's poetry completely by chance, on my friend' social media story. I was so taken by the text—matter of fact, and yet so multifaceted—that I was immediately drawn to wonder if I could make a song cycle setting Tweets. These texts (all published poems except for the third, which exists solely as a post) evoke images of our relationship to the world around us, in all of our largeness and smallness.
