SPOKEN WORD & POETRY
A SPOKEN WORD & GUITAR EXPERIENCE
Ayse Balkos’ provocative voice comes to life with the moody guitar stylings of Ash Gray.
Ayse electrifies her words with an otherworldly attitude compounded with the unique flavor of her Turkish-British voice that has the ability to conjure a fresh emphasis and approach to the language.
Ash Gray accompanies on his guitar, intuitively improvising and reacting to the words creating a tour-de-force of collaboration and conversation between orator and musician. The constant ebb and flow makes each show an inspired spectacle that carries a diverse range of moods. The pieces take on the full spectrum , ranging all the way from dreamy landscapes to punkish, rogue battle cries.
Each performer inspires and pushes the other differently each time so that no two performances are alike. This unpredictability creates a suspense that is engaging and explosive by carrying the audience through a variety feelings and moods, a complete inspired and improvised journey each night.

The best melodies are yet to be sung
The best melodies are hanging on my tongue
The best melodies are yet to be found
The best melodies are coming out of my lungs
The best melodies are the ones you hold in your mouth
The best melodies are touched with your sight
The best melodies are given with your heart
The best melodies are crowned in the night
