Although this performance was released to YouTube in 2019, the Ottawa-based poet Miranda Martel was regrettably not on our radar until now. Apt613 editors and dozens of attendees were very fortunate to see/hear Martel during a virtual showcase and chat presented by Music.Art.Ppl at Artpreneur last weekend.
The Artpreneur conference, which ends tonight (here’s the schedule for Wednesday, Nov. 25), has featured a number of talks and panels, including a look in on Music.Art.Ppl’s new label initiative, which looks to provide opportunities for both poets and musicians. Martel is one of the label’s first few signings, along with Gold Bonds, You Everyone Someone, Tmorr, JFUN, and Pithra.
