Poetry Jam

The teens at the Aldine Branch have been hard at work on their latest project. With the help of on-line sources, like ujam, they have been able to convert their recordings of popular poetry into original musical scores. What does that mean? Well, what you are hearing when you listen to the pieces is their voice converted into a musical instrument. Pretty cool, right?

The new series is being called Poetry Jam and make sure you don't miss the other works as we release them in the coming weeks. First up--checkout Daniela's take on an Edgar Allan Poe classic. She really captures the anxiety his work typically conjures up, if you ask us.
