Volcanic Sunlight
Chorus

CHORUS:
A LITERARY
MIXTAPE


Edited by Saul Williams
with Dufflyn Lammers & Aja Monet
Available September 4th, 2012


PRE-ORDER NOW!

Last year I put a call out through social media for poets to send me their writings for the sake of a literary experiment which I hoped to engineer. Within one month I received approximately 8000 poems from which I, with the help of Aja and Dufflyn, selected 100. I then put the titles and authors aside and attempt to fuse 100 voices into one. Themes arose organically, as did the sequence of the poems (The many contributors are listed in the back, like film credits.) I then highlighted words throughout the length of the book to create a "meta-poem", furthering the fusion of the many voices into one. CHORUS is the newest testament of a living generation. A testament that affirms that sometimes we stand on the shoulders of previous generations, while other times we are forced to stand on their necks.
