Songs for Spoken Words

An Arts Council funded exploration into how technology can combine poetry and music in new ways.



"A beautiful project, a lovely idea.”

Lauren Laverne, BBC 6Music

“Technically dazzling and emotionally involving.”

The Arts Desk

"...recalling the recent soundtrack works of Johann Johannsson and Scott Twynholm, his music has a brightness and bluster that suggests mechanics happily and magically working towards a greater cause. When he broods, his music still gains a hurried traction... Even at his rawest, Birkin has a penchant for lushness."

Norman Records

“…worth the price of admission for the music alone; each tune is engaging, both easy on the ear and able to summon wistful feelings in the listener.”

Stationary Travels

“The 6 tracks flow together so seamlessly, it begs to be played on repeat. This is music meant for a turntable.”

Sly Vinyl
