Mandika is a spoken word/jazz poetry artist on iCompositions. She allowed me to take one of her recorded poetry readings and manipulate it and add music. I used a small sample of some bass playing by another iComp artist who goes by the name of plexaura.

A Haunting Re-visited
by Mandika

Coming off like a cure

Dove covered fudge bar cure

Unapologetically cocoa

haunting my ethnic matter

that i had to know

existence beyond the

understatement of your voice

Images taking control of your mind

angles of your heated footsteps

providing glimpses inside your future

or the significance of your past

Could we be made to last?

in the haven of infinite nuances

should I pace myself quietly?

will it bring me adjacent to your heart beat

single out what moves a smile or whence from you

how wide the road of your patience

undaunted measure of family and friends

on whom can you depend?

Is you the man’s man or a woman’s end

Can I part your turbulent waters

with the pledge of much attention

I know you weren’t the house hand

Serving nobodies plantation

If a whisper between us blends

Texture of your deep cafe skin

Alchemy of your slumbered meetings

Do I deem deserving of your dreams

Wishing myself the means

If I could have forever

Are you here forever?

If not then…

it was worth the journey though your obscurity


had to know how far I should go

why you haunt me so

Haunted !!!!
A little outside my league and so this is just what I think-
I love the way it started, very dramatic and attention catching and full in sound. I liked the panning of the voice as well. The mix to me sounded fine, - nothing stood out as being too loud or too quiet everything fine. I suppose like a lot of people - rightly or wrongly I try to compare new music to old . This reminded me a bit of some of Frank Zappa's more obscure tracks like the - Dangerous Kitchen, and some of the tracks which Gail Zappa did with him.
A very enjoyable piece.
