This is the eighth edition in the HAIKU series of music and haiku poetry.

Naviar Haiku is a music project run by Naviar Records in which artists are invited to make music inspired by a weekly assigned haiku poem; participation is open to all. You can find out more about the project at www.naviarrecords.com/about/naviar-haiku

I have reduced the number of tracks in the compilation to 10, hopefully making the release more accessible; in addition to the music from 10 different artists, I have included a 22 page booklet with information about musicians and poets that participated in this release.

Click "info" to read the poem that inspired each track and find out more about the musician who made it. This compilation includes music compositions from 10 experimental artists from around the world. All songs were composed in seven days or less.
