ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These poems on SPOKEN LIFE were written and recited by Philippa Harvey. They were mixed with unique soundscapes composed and produced by Theo Newton. The music and sounds were tuned to A-432 Hz Universal Resonant Frequency. Among others 432 Hz music works to balance both hemispheres of the brain, forcing them to work in harmony. We believe the combination of the particular words, music and sounds on this album will help transporting you into yourself. Enjoy!

Philippa Harvey explains about the album:

I grew up in Africa between Zambia and Zimbabwe until 1973. Today we are called scatterlings, the left overs of no fixed residence. Scattered people made homeless as political and economic changes broke down countries around the world. Most of this lost generation tried to find roots in what was to be their new country and home. It is sadly the same as thousands of war immigrants today.

As children we find ourselves defenseless in any context, we grow up without a voice, surrounded by an impotence in the big people’s world. I managed this impotence through writing and art. I have always written. I grew up. And I have scatterlings of papers in all my draws waiting for that valued “time to finish”, books, poems, and art. One day, to finish one collection happened in 2003. The book My Stories has a collection of 36 poems they date from 1984 to 2003. It is also in Spanish, as Spain is the beautiful country that ended up being my family’s new home. I continued to be a nomad.

For years, I had wanted to create an audio book, and modernize sound. Put some poems into a musicscape. I tried experimenting without much success. This is when in 2019, as a life gift I met Theo Newton. What better bizarre mix than a Danish composer, an African scatterling in the beautiful mountains of Alicante could you get? Thank you Theo for your patience and inspiration in putting sound to accompany words. Thank you wonderful Maddie, for your silence when bringing in teas and homemade cookies.
Thank you for listening to “Spoken Life” audio book collection of stories written from the cathedral of humanism.

Track listing:

1. ”Introduction to Poetry and Nature“. The short Nature Poems were written when I was an English Teacher in Athens Greece in the early 1990´s. These were written for young children to read and create a small play using Nature and the Elements as a theme. At the time the children made the music, so it is beautiful to hear these words to Theo´s soundscape.

2. ”Homage”, was written after the 9:11 disaster. As a biography to a sister who was a conscript. Written out of fear that one day we may all loose someone to war. I still cry when I read this poem.

3. ”You” is a love poem written to my lover who I was missing. In youth you miss someone with an agonizing sorrow. This was reflected in the pouring rain that was hitting my veranda and its plastic roof. Deafening my senses.

4. ”1933-1988” Was written as an expression to another impotence of elected dictatorship. Yuppies and indifference. My daughter was just born, and I was concerned with what world I was bringing her into. I could extend the title to 2019.

5. ”Love Poems”
• “A memory”: A poem I wrote with that desperation that takes hold of you when the person you love has to leave.
I lived with this feeling of imprisonment in wrote iron gates after they left.
• ”Be Mine”: A poem dedicated to passion when we can let go making.
• “Happiness”: Dedicated to those people in your life that makes your heart stop for a second, when you look them in the eyes and
you get that feeling that you have known them forever.

6. “Coffee Frappe” A poem dedicated to a great friend. He was an expert at making cold coffee with evaporated milk in a filthy shaker. We had wonderful times in Athens Greece, amongst writer debates and little money.

7. “Racial Indentation”. When I am asked how was it to live in Africa? People mean, what was it like to live as a white girl in Africa? All I can say is if I was born blind, and no one told me that I was blind, there would be nothing unusual for me. I grew up with wonderful people. As a result I am a positive humanist psychologist among other things.
