Matt & Keith Howden ● Barley Top (book & CD)
2013 Barley Top is written by Keith Howden, Matt’s father, who also reads his poems. Matt has set them to music. The music wraps round the words, pulses to the word’s pulse, its tensions parallel. At the end, musical themes come together in a symphonic finish. Barley Top is a quality hardback book, sewn sections, with silver foil blocked spine and front. The accompanying audio CD comes in matching black and silver card wallet. Limited edition of 500 copies. Unique and bespoke.
