kickin it off

Hey all,

Just thought I'd start off with a project idea that I had. I'm looking to create some kind of art around several poems by Langston Hughes. There are twelve poems in a set entitled "Feet of Jesus." Each poem deals with the theme of Southern Baptist quasi-religious fervor. I'd like to find several artists perhaps visual artists, video and audio engineers, turntablists, dancers, musicians. I would like the text of each poem to be mostly sung by a tenor voice... one that can simulate the sound of a Baptist preacher. It would be awesome to work with creators in various media as I would mostly be the architect of sound.

Oh and btw, my name is Abe and I'm a composer. Check out my webpage if you wanna know more. Aight all, let's stir some shit up! =)
