Festival - Cadence Video Poetry Festival 2023 [Hybrid]
** K. Van Petten opens the night with live music and poetry! **
K. Van Petten will open the night with excerpts from the tape of music & poetry For Someone.
Van Petten created For Someone in Port Townsend, Washington where they sampled sounds, wrote music, and recorded poetry in residence with Centrum at Fort Worden. The tape is available for purchase online via Hello America Stereo Cassette, or at The Vera Projects cassette tape vending machine.
Words on For Someone:
The music- gentle and light as air, a tapestry of earthy sound. The words are illuminating like sunshine after a long night. There is a benevolence to these 11 pieces of writing that will stick with you long after listening. For Someone is in fact for someone for you, for me, for anyone who needs it, and I feel certain a very large number of people need this encouraging, sweet, magical creature of a debut album. Adam Gnade
Van Petten (they/them) is a poet and musician based in Seattles Capitol Hill neighborhood. You can find their music wherever you listen under Baddy Gold and their poems in zines floating around Seattle coffee shops. Their debut audiobook was released on cassette tape with Hello America Stereo Cassette, and their debut EP of music with a new project releases on Dance Cry Dance in 2023. They currently work for local coffee roaster Caffe Vita, and local poetry magazine Poetry Northwest.
