2-12-09: Thursday Afternoon Spiritual

Listen closely as this ever-so-slightly devolves from what could have been a rather straightforward paean to the Glory of God into a Prayer for Doubt, or Agnosticism, if not outright Atheism. Or perhaps it’s a supplication to the God, once immanent, but now fading, like the primordial signal of the early universe, into the ever-receding cosmic background radiation. And why Thursday afternoon? Is this—dare I say it—is this little ditty a sonic representation the history of our relationship with the deity?

No—but it is an interesting little experiment in leaving the sustain pedal down too long, and letting the conflicting chords clash like the colors of a drunken rainbow.
