The cassette album Kivirivit by poet Harry Salmenniemi is based on his eponymous book (Otava, 2013). Tested by Ruton Music staff in several hard conditions from domestic areas to windy outdoors with and without headphones, the experience of the pre-listening sessions is that this “audio book” is most functional simply while driving – especially commuting at a slow speed during the morning rushhour. The downside of this highly recommended method is the fact that most likely you will need to buy a vehicle old enough to carry a decent cassette player.

“Every poem begins with the words ‘Then, not now’. The chain of clauses and sentences progresses through the interplay of memory and observation. Language and mind digress, but no unifying story ever emerges because the text breaks down the structures of narrative logic. As the poem suggests, reading becomes writing: ‘Don’t read this, write this.’ The speaker’s mind is filled with the straining conditions of everyday life. Human relationships, separations, and the mere fact of being are like heavy burdens not alleviated by living as an artist. The idea of the work is of speaking through all the repeating elements, rewriting them, writing on top of them, emptying them, dismissing them.” – Mervi Kantokorpi, on the book Kivirivit

”Kivirivien maailma on havaintojen luettelo. Se on pitkä muistikirja, jonka merkinnät ovat sekä niin konkreettisia, että ne tuntuvat todelta, että niin abstrakteja, että ne voivat olla kenen tahansa todellisuutta. Ne eivät rakenna kirjoittajansa julkista identiteettiä, ne eivät tee neroa. Salmenniemi on kuin runojensa virkamies, joka vain panee kirjoituksia täytäntöön. Ne koskevat ihan yhtä hyvin ketä tahansa toista kuin häntä itseään. Merkinnät kertovat sairaudesta, toipumisesta, terveydestä, tästä maasta ja joistain muista, omasta vartalosta ja toisten, muutamista elintarvikkeista. Siinä ei ole mitään romanttista tai dramaattista, vaan selkeyttä.” – Maaria Pääjärvi, Kivirivit-kirjasta
