The Lisbon Poetry Orchestra is a multidisciplinary collective formed by a nucleus of four musicians, joined by four voices and who invite other artists to celebrate and interpret poetry in a truly unique journey to discover and reinvent the spoken word.
This will consist of several supports: a book, in sketch book format, with poems by a new generation of authors and illustrations by Daniel Moreira, and two CD’s, one with 15 recited poems and the other, Music for Private Poetry Sessions, with 15 themes for the reader to be able to declaim over the musical background.
This work started from a creative process in which the poets and writers chosen by the group: Cláudia R. Sampaio, Daniel Jonas, Filipa Leal, Paulo José Miranda and Valério Romão, were invited to write about musical pieces composed by the Lisbon Poetry Orchestra.
The result is there, 15 poems set to music allow the listener/reader a very particular view of the poetic universe of these authors.
In addition, there is the challenge of interacting with the audience, through the instrumental CD Music for Private Poetry Sessions, where the audience is invited to interpret the poems or write new poems for these songs, or to intervene graphically in the book with drawings, collages or poems, send the result of these experiences to the group and eventually become part of the community of collaborators on the project.
