Christopher A. Large is a poet at heart who has always written words onto paper whether it comes out as poetry, lyrics, rants, stories, screams, or a thesis. . . he writes. Zalenka is the conduit in which all that wordplay gets laid over some radical tunes in a mostly nerdcore, indie hip-hop manner. He will continue to explore the regions of lyrical music space and bring fresh perspectives all while pushing the strange boundaries of what poetry and music could, and has yet to become.
