I was checking out The Wire magazine's website the other week when I came across the music of Simon Fisher Turner. Listening to a track on his MySpace site, I was immediately struck by what a good film soundtrack it would make. I grabbed pen and paper and replayed it...
The challenge is to produce a piece of flash fiction (or, if you prefer, poetry) as follows:
1. Armed with pen and paper, go to Simon Fisher Turner's MySpace site and listen to Ghost Road Berlin (it's one of the tracks on his playlist).
2. Write down what comes into your head as you listen.
3. Knock the result into shape and post it on your blog next Monday (February 1st).
4. Leave a link to your post in the comments below, and I'll post a list of the links I receive.
I was initially going to post a preview of what I've written here, now, to get the old ball rolling - but then I decided not to. It will interesting to see the similarities and differences in the ways we responded to the music.
