Between song and story and poem and monologue is the music of voice, the rhythm of voice, the melody of voice, the dissonance of voice — the urban voice, voice of the city, voice of its streets and alleyways, its gutters and cafes; the voice of the underclass and the bourgeoisie, academia and Bohemia; outlaws and establishment. Transgressive voices. Inventive voices. Voices seeping out tenement windows. Cracks in car windows. Voices in doorways. Rising from subways. Out of bookstores. Art galleries. Taverns. Even music, itself, is a voice, telling a story, setting a mood, telling a tale with its syntax of notes. Live music. Recorded music. Field recordings. Distinctions of genre dissolving as poets, writers, musicians find intriguingly new and ingenious voices.
