This program will introduce a relatively new genre of music known as Post Rock and combine it with poetry and in so doing create what we refer to as "Post Rock Poetry." Post Rock music is grounded in 1980's and 90's indie rock music. It is primarily instrumental, guitar, base, drums, and keyboard, with few lyrics. Typically, post rock pieces are lengthy and may contain, "... repetitive build ups of timbre, dynamics and texture." (Wikipedia, 9/11/2016.) Because Post Rock seldom has lyrics, it lends itself to the creation of Post Rock Poetry that can explore the quest for a peace, understanding, and rising above hostilities and misfortune. In short, it rings with hope.
