FARUQ ADIGUNSOUNDS LiKE CHAOS associate
The art forms I love making include creative writing in forms of spoken word, music & script writing. It’s always a pleasure working with music producers to invent new sounds and ways to express myself through music. As well as that, collaborating with young people and other creatives is always an inspiring process of developing ideas and concepts to create devised theatre productions.
At the moment I’m currently independently working on creating a mixtape which is full of original music by myself and friends. I’m also working with SLC as an assistant director/facilitator.
In the future I want to be a professional writer in all different forms of creative writing including books, plays, movies & songwriting.

Hmm I Wonder
(spoken word & short film)
An absurd poem looking at the principles of perspective through spoken language and film. This poem flips reality on its head or tails. Yet, what is reality when each of us could have a different definition for a word or a different story for a situation. Look at it this way or that way, the facts remain the same. This is a poem made by me on the day that I made it.
Times like thisTimes like this focuses on my feeling and understanding right now, in the center of a changing world. Times like this is a reminder to persevere. A reminder to look on the bright side.
It’s like it creeps in the night but lurks through the day
the people are in awe
some think yes, this is awesome
the rest think no, this awful
at first the feeling was powerless
like a glass filled cup
now, I feel
they said no
no picnics in fields
lock yourselves down till the world gets healed
I’m glad, I myself have healed
healed from the pressure
these days the pain I feel is lesser
apart from when my uncle died
my eyes got wetter
last time I saw him I didn’t say much so perhaps I’ll send him a letter
I’m sure he’ll receive it never
but that’s better than never ever
never have I ever lost a figure so close
so today I would like to raise a toast
to the NHS, I’ll for them I’ll clap to infinity
and for the families who have lost their anchors
Don’t blame yourselves, the selection was made at random
