James Niskyis creating Vignettes, Anecdotes, Lyrics, and Musical Pieces.
Like what you would expect an interesting guest to share during dinner.
No less than 500 words.
These explorations of words and language may become lyrics included in future musical pieces.
Word count unknown. A tier for the adventurous.
The best Vignettes may extend into more well formed Lyrics.
Lyrics are longer than Vignettes, more well formed, and may be included in future Musical Pieces.
About James Nisky
I will share "Creative Excerpts" of my works that may include:
Creative Excerpt - Vignettes
A short collection of verses, phrases, or word collages. This could be based around a theme, or could just be a word painting. I don’t consider it poetry, but it is poetic.
Creative Excerpt - Anecdotes
Medium length examinations of history, culture, and the world. Longer form, conversational, topics with a certain richness or culture.
Creative Excerpt - Lyrics
Lyrics I am writing for upcoming musical releases, or unreleased lyrics. Creative collections of words - very non-cliche. The best Vignettes may turn into more well formed Lyrics.
Creative Excerpt - Musical Pieces
I write and record songs. Difficult to categorize, but you can expect classical period influences in a modern baroque alternative, progressive cabaret, moody, melodic, very non-mainstream, high resolution, high concept style. Vocals may sound similar to an Elliott Smith style vocal. You may hear things from a vocal with piano or guitar accompaniment, to a fully produced track. Expect a few tasteful renditions of other artist’s work periodically. You may also observe a path of phrases or words from Vignettes making their way into Lyrics, and subsequently into Musical Pieces.
