This is Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven", a spoken word piece read over an original score. Technically, it should be read by a male, but I figured it was okay cuz I have a low voice.

The music was improvised on the keyboard. No loops (shocking!), no pencils, just me playing the keyboard. I don't actually know how to play the keyboard, but I decided to fake it. There's a violin, a cello, and some tympany.

So there you have it! My first stab at orchestral music (neophyte that I am) and the wonder of Poe's poetry.

As for the poem, I did make an occasional error, but decided to keep the cohesion and emotion of the read, rather than go for technical perfection. This was a cold read, and therefore full of spontenaity. So I apologize for those couple of words I misspoke, but I'm hoping that won't get in the way of the beauty of Poe's poem.

this is captivating - no not grating
from the voice who should be hoarse
from a poem of death -
of course!
