Wise Trees is a sonic interpretation of the poem “The Winter Trees” by William Carlos Williams (1883 -1963)
All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold
Five key words from the poem were taken and tracks created to represent them and since the poem is short, so is the CD. This is deliberate, as it becomes a sonic poem in itself.
Dedicated to my Mother, who instilled in me a love of nature (and catkins) and to my Daughter, who introduced me to the poetry of William Carlos Williams, for which I am thankful.
“I must confess I’m impressed by this very cool, tasteful and balanced ambient gem in a nutshell, with the outro piece as a highlight. Make sure you listen to this in a quiet environment and use quality headphones to curl up, immerse completely.”
