Dianna J with Hypnopomp A clear and fresh voice rising up from the pack. She takes me along as she sings her story. Her lyrics and sound are modern yet uniquely tied to the folk tradition. I find this song both haunting and revelatory.

lyrics

I'm a resonant body
with knuckles and lungs
beat me with cymbals
play chords on my tongue

I'm a resonant body
with elbows and toes
drum on my rib cage
release my dissonant tones

I'm a resonant body
trace it along my skin
in the freckles and old scars
and the lines I have hid

In a resonant body
all the frequencies hold like
dirty feet on carpet
your breath in the cold
warm breath in the cold

I'm sorry for our miscommunication
and force fed sympathies
I'll rest in the garden
with roots, oh and the reeds
safe from human frequencies

I'm a resonant body
With elbows and toes
drum on my rib cage
release my dissonant tones
