rainbow mewsik brings you the sometimes harmonious, sometimes jarring words, vocalizations, and music of world-renowned sound poet bill bissett. This is poetry that bends your ear, that makes you stand up and take note. Through a rich and provocative mix of maracas, verse, meditations, chants, saxophones and other instruments, rainbow mewsik is fresh, in-your-face performance literature that constantly plays with how we create rainbows of meaning via everything to do with sound. In rainbow mewsik bill bissett has teamed up with Chris Meloche to develop musical and electronic treatments of several pieces. "4shadowing," for instance consists of only one word recorded directly onto the computer, then stretched and put through a process called granular synthesis, which allowed them to manipulate the tiniest aspects of sound in real time. Other pieces in the collection were recorded live, in real time, with no overdubbing or post-production work.

Bill Bissett has been performing his unique style of sound poetry for more than 20 years. He is an icon of the experimental and sound poetry scene and has consistently contributed innovative, thought-provoking, enthusiastic performances, which receive ovations from listeners across North America.
