The second rehearsal of "Getting Here" went really well last night! It feels good to play my own music.

Getting here/Soul Delay

I just finished writing a guitar duet based on the idea of soul delay. I read about it in Willian Gibson's book "Pattern Recognition." The idea is then your soul can only travel at about 100m per hour, so if you travel over that speed, your soul can't keep up with your body. So, once you arrive at your destination it might take a few days for your soul to catch up with you. I really liked this idea and I started imagining the adventures my soul might have had on its way to Japan...a lonely early morning departure on silent seas...some turbulence and mythical creature sightings...a tribal dance in the shadows...arrival-cherry blossom snow and the final reunion celebrations.
The piece is called "Getting Here" and I'll be performing it next week in Nagoya at a possibly secret location.
