Nicolas Lobo makes an album cover for O,Miami
O, Miami Poetry Festival and Discosoma Records (in collaboration with Eating Our Words) are proud to present an original 7″ record featuring 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winner Tracy K. Smith and LA Times Book Prize finalist Gabrielle Calvocoressi. Each poet recorded three poems at Honor Roll Studios in Little Haiti on April 1, 2011, which were then mastered by Danny Meltzer and pressed on decorated wax in a limited edition of 200. The record cover is an original, hand-painted photograph by Nicolas Lobo.
This Thursday, September 20th, at 8:30 pm, the record will be officially released at a party at Lester’s in Wynwood. The record will be played in its entirety (app. 6 minutes) and then there will be a line up of guest DJ’s. Copies are available for sale for $25.
