Reverb on Verse

Jessie Giles joined 7 Melbourne poets and a number of music producers in the amazing project Reverb on Verse.

All Our Stories (PBS 106.7FM) radio presenters and producers Jess Fairfax & Leah Avene in collaboration with The Milo Mix, present a unique project bringing together female and gender diverse poets and producers. The idea came about through their struggle to find good quality audio recordings of local poets to play on the show, while lamenting at the lack of female producers in their music collections.

The way it worked: 8 selected poets recorded a chosen piece which the producers then weaved a soundscape around. The final product is Reverb on Verse, an album of 10 exquisite spoken word pieces accompanied by emotive soundscapes.
