Renku 1

Various Artists

Haiku poetry has its roots in a genre of Japanese collaborative poetry called Renku, which consists of two different stanzas: the image developed in the first one (a three-line verse, the origin of haiku) is contrasted to (or augmented by) a related image in the final two-lines. The juxtaposition of the two stanzas produces more meaning than either part could by itself. These two sections are written by two different poets: hence the idea of using renku poetry to create a new music project.
