In the early to mid 1990s I wrote and edited an Internet-distributed music newsletter, called Sonic Verse™ (SV), which also included original creative writings.

Many years have passed since I put the newsletter on hold, but the time was right to resurrect SV and its spirit: to highlight the music, artists, and associated elements that I enjoy (e.g. album cover artwork).

Going forward, SV entries will crop-up at insilentpassage.com from time-to-time, along with a few twists and tendrils related to the concept of "sonic verse."

P.S. The seeds for the resurrection of SV were sown in the post, "In Mental Streams" (April 2009), and in posts containing the label "soundtrack."
