Poem by David Bengtson
Video by Media Mike Hazard (The Center for International Education) with a class of students at Long Prairie-Grey Eagle High School
Accordion: Juergen Brunkhorst
i really liked how the accordion music was so central to this — how it gave it much more depth than the poem would have had on its own. an interesting one!
(and that’s a sentence you don’t hear often: “i really liked how the accordion …”)
I love accordion music, so I was happy to find this video poem.
I like your poem Mr B!
I said I wood send you some of my music so here is a link to my website
under artist Thurdwhirled
I have been working on a new album called Anthropocene…the modern scientific definition for 2012.
all the music & names of songs relate to the theories…very geological & geographical.
hope you like it…let me know what you think.
you were a big influence in my creativity & taught me to think clearly & openly & visualize the unseen & hear the unheard…believe it or not…thank you!
1984 Languish & Useless
1984 Creative Writing….loved that class!
ps…not all songs on the website represent new album-just a mixture of various streaming audio clips of some of my very diversified musical pieces-some of hte songs will be on the album-
I’m not sure this is the best way to reach Mr. Bengston. This is just a blog where I am embedding videos I find on the web, his being one of them, and unless he is in the practice of Googling his own name pretty often, I doubt he will discover these comments of yours for some time to come. I don’t have any contact information for him.
