The Metaphoreal

The Metaphoreal s01e02

Scanning my sketchbook, knotwork calligraphy, the tracklist, my pipe, tobacco seed pods, sea shells, prism, shield bug, dead crow, to commemorate the second episode of The Metaphoreal with Sam Knot.

Tune in for the second episode of Sam Knot’s The Metaphoreal “Crowsmass”:

Uneasy glistening for these shiny dark times sure to lighten up the funkiest of monks and evil biker nuns to boot. Whadda we got? Ol’ Black-robed wizard-crow laying down the l’Awe’d, above all ‚Ķelse/elfs, sorryzzzElves. No I zzz. A bit too much me! Nothing too terribly twee although some high functioning depression and anxiety softened by floppy-sleeved romantic streak and sweetened by underlying pixie-clown syndrome, hopefully. A Pam Ayres poem read by Sofiona the 8-bit super computer, definitely. Some other beats & bobs. Yes & no. A heavy dose of murdered crow cant. Natch.

“Psychedelic Poetry Au Naturel” from deepest Normal-dy.

P.S. – Spiritplants Radio are on their annual holiday until late January 2021. This episode belongs primarily to Winter Solstice, and to 2020 in general, so in this instance I am releasing the episode pre-broadcast.

Peas fronds, & lovage, lettuce take care of our elves, ’til next time, metaphorce be with you. xxx

The Metaphoreal

The Metaphoreal s01e01

A scan of a few items, bits of my sketchbook, natural objects, and a few musical instruments, to commemorate the first episode of The Metaphoreal with Sam Knot.

Tune in to the inaugural episode of Sam Knot’s The Metaphoreal for “psychedelic poetry au naturel”, a story about spiders, the odd giggle, more or less experimental musics, birdsong, church bells, mushrooms, unicorns – all them good stuffs!

Produced for Spiritplants Radio, the show is a mix of poetry and story readings, as well as bits & bobs spontaneously recorded into my phone, together with my own music. I started producing this episode around Halloween/Samhain, 2020, so it has a bit of a late autumn vibe.

Meta-force be with you!
