A Closing of Hands

Challenge: Noise Challenge #8: The Portrait |

By: Richard

On the surface, you could sum me up with a sneeze, a snore, a throat clearing and a mumbled joke. It wouldn’t tell you very much, though.

What really sums me up is my guitar. This is a piece I wrote nearly 30 years ago. It’s a slightly shortened version I recorded at my kitchen table one morning this week, playing the guitar I got for my 18th birthday. The guitar has had its fair share of dings and could use a bit of renovation and some spare parts, but it’s still my favourite and I wouldn’t be parted from it. The piece was originally part of a triptych for a dance company.
