What’s New!









by Roger Aplon and Marcos Fernandes


Poet Roger Aplon and musician Marcos Fernandes unveil Of What I’ve Seen, a powerful and gripping collaborative work. A collection of thirteen of Aplon’s poems set to music by Fernandes, the album – both a culmination of their decades-long partnership and a fresh new approach to their creative interplay – engages the listener with its immediacy and its myriad moods. Though living in different continents, the two have managed to create a cohesive narrative and a chronicle of their times. Aplon, a well traveled and well published poet, offers a broad historical perspective and poignant social commentary, stating that the poems “seem to speak about the country I was raised in and the culture I wrestled and still wrestle with. I think the selection serves as a reflection on the times and character that has shaped much of my writing.“ Fernandes, himself a well traveled and published multi-instrumentalist and soundartist, brings forth his catholic compositional style to sculpt a studied yet spontaneous soundtrack for each poem. With the help of a select group of players expanding his palette, Fernandes conjures up diverse backdrops from beat driven ensemble grooves to abstract improvisations to ambient soundscapes.
