Q 1 – Pete the Poet Interviews Soundtrack Musician Zariah Hazel

Hey Zariah, do you ever use chance elements when creating your music? If so, share a memorable time you did.

Pete the Poet

Hi Pete the Poet. In the music I created for this adventure, I was very inspired by the impromptu jams I’ve had in towns up and down the I5. I tried to channel the memories of being in a random shop on main street at 3 AM with my step brother in a pioneer town, as we jammed away with sloppy free formed blues, where emotion and dirt sauce were preferred over timing and synchronicity. Pretty much everything about those sessions were “chance elements.”

Pete the Poet still writes poetry. He also co-edits the online poetry journal http://www.ADozenNothing.com.
