"Restoring a sense of wonder in the world by finding the extraordinary in the everyday is my mission as an artist," says Bienemann.

Bienemann, a veteran singer/songwriter with five critically acclaimed albums, ventures into new territory with the Haiku Milieu book, audiobook, and soundtrack.

Bienemann created the 70-minute audiobook inspired by the national movement to increase access to the visual arts for the sight impaired, developing the format with Chicago Lighthouse.  The audiobook features Bienemann reading her haiku, describing her photo, and then reading her haiku again.

The audiobook is underscored by a 70-minute instrumental soundtrack comprised of Bienemann's original acoustic tunes and remixes by Mikhail Fiksel, aka DJ White Russian. Enveloping each haiku in a meditative, ambient soundscape, the Haiku Milieu soundtrack is the perfect backdrop for reading the book, gatherings of family and friends, and personal reflection.

The talented singer/songwriters who wrote and will perform an original song based on a photo and haiku from Haiku Milieu include: Matthew Francis Andersen, Ryan Joseph Anderson, Naomi Ashley, Robin Bienemann, Donnie Biggins, Rachel Claff, Steve Dawson, Orla Donoghue, Rachel Drew, Kate FitzGerald, Angie Hawkins, Steve Hughes, Peter Joly, Dag Juhlin, Ron Lazzeretti, Ian Leith, Christine Melody, Cathie Van Wert Menard, Aaron Mitchell, Chris Neville, Jacob Peterson, Rob Pierce, Cheryl Tomblin, Jodi Walker, and Terry White.
