Skylight Authors team up on RUINS CD…

Daniel Staniforth and Rebsie Fairholm present ‘sonic poemscape’ readings from Margaret Randall’s new book of poetry, RUINS (University of New Mexico Press, ISBN 978-0826350671).

The music features original compositions as well as Daniel and Rebsie’s arrangements of traditional melodies.

About the upcoming book:

“In this poetry collection, Margaret Randall uses the metaphor of ruins to meditate on time’s movement–through memory, through cities, through the leavings of history, and through the bodies of people who have experienced time’s transformations and traumas. Randall’s ruins include not only Chaco Canyon, Hovenweep, Teotihuacan, Machu Picchu, Kiet Siel, Petra, and sites in ancient Greece and Egypt, but also Auschwitz-Birkenau and lives shattered by torture and oppression.” (Taken from UNMP website).
