Pocketbook Poetry and a Paperclip

pocketbook poetry

Behold, a short run of handmade mini-poetry books, bound by a paperclip, created for the In Words Showcase in Ottawa. The Sun Harmonic brought 44 copies, including short poems and poetic ideas from his pocketbook, to the venue to offer for free to the crowd. A few of them are still lying around in the Suitcase Record Shop found at live shows, or, you could email to ask of their whereabouts? Larger collections of poetry and ramblings will be assembled, later in life. For now, enjoy Pocketbook Poetry and a Paperclip.

The latest songs from Kaleb, offered as ‘Coloured Sketches’

Coloured SketchesColoured Sketches is the third installation of Demonstrations from Kaleb Hikele, also known by his birth name The Sun Harmonic. New songs are available now on a handmade CD- ionclude the standard version (11 songs + a B-Side) when you buy discs from the Moon Melody Suitcase Record Shop.

The practice started in 2011 to capture off-the-floor demos of his unreleased songs- this collection moves from Demonstration #39 forward to #57. While Kaleb Hikele turned his home studio into a sound construction zone, city construction workers made noise outside installing new shingles on the rooftop. Inside of The Townhouse, Kaleb ran through improvisational performances of his latest songs, travelling from the piano to the electric guitar to the acoustic guitar before disarray led to shutting off the microphones at 4:30 a.m. on August 31st. He finished recording the to-do list of 19 tunes in the basement on the afternoon of September 2nd and titled the new batch of music ‘Coloured Sketches’.

Please enjoy his musical expression offered to you and thanks for listening.

PS. On Sunday, September 22nd, a Listening Party offered the only digital download, but you can always listen to a song online here or here.
