Unpsychology Issue 5: the Earthsongs edition is the latest issue of this innovative journal. As well as the usual work by writers, artists and 'unpsychologists' this issue also include a playlist of music, songs and videos.
Wendy Robertson Fyfe offers a 'wild-singing' essay to set the agenda. There are contributions from unpsychology regulars – Toby Chown, Helen Moore, Janet Lees and Jenny Arran – all who created pieces combining art, music, poetry and writing. The Earthlines playlist includes innovative video work from Janet Lees, Katrine Faber and Howard Vause, and music by a range of artists from around the world including The Land, Abbie Jeffers, Janey Colbourne, Kinyeri, Michael on Fire, Mairi Campbell, the Carbon Town Cryer, Maia Eden, Post War Stories, Sur Automatica Piloto and Joel Elliott and the Roots Grown Deep collective.
Artwork is by Jenny Arran, Sarah Stone and Jay Sioux – a real variety of pieces that give texture and beuaty to this issue. Poetry from Memona Hussain, Cindy Rinne, Laura Bissell, Helen Moore, Toby Chown, Philip Kienholz, Serena Constance and Janet Lees keeps the literary juices of Unpsychology flowing. Steve Thorp has a short story – set in the same future world as one in the Climate Minds issue – and a set of pieces that act as a taster of his forthcoming book of reflective meditations, Lifesongs. Steve also edited the issue with Julia Macintosh whose wisdoms, as always, give real context to the magazine.
