The Monotone

Synopsis: 

Can a poem derail a New York City subway train? The D train was barreling through the West 81rst street station when suddenly...

The Monotone is a poetry film. The Monotone song is written and performed by Paul Mills aka Poez. Poez created The Monotone as a further experiment in rhythmic musical poetry; poetry using only one or two syllables; performance with digital delay. Recognized by The New York Times as 'a spoken word pioneer', his career trajectory has taken him from the sidewalks of Boston's Harvard Square and Greenwich Village to concert stages in Paris and New York, radio and television in New York, Boston, Prague. He has worked at times as a cab driver, civil rights trial lawyer, actor, bouncer, and philosophy book salesman.  

The Monotone was written and performed by Paul Mills aka Poez, a singer-songwriter in NYC poezthepoet.com. The Monotone film was created by 2112productions.org.
