A musical interpretation of "The Anniad" by Gwendolyn Brooks, composed in a flurry by Ivy Adrian for a live spoken-word performance of the poem. The composition consists of five distinct parts––or movements––with a few seconds pause between each of them, so please keep listening. Unfortunately, strict licensing issues preclude us from recording any portion of the text.

All instruments performed more-or-less by Ivy Adrian, drummed-up and percussed by Lucas Bass. Field recordings of birds by Lb® taken in coastal Maine.

Recorded by Lb at Lifeblood Studio NYC.
