Story

My son Brennan came up with the hypnotic rhythmic pattern that flows throughout this piece. It sounded to me like a Steve Reich-type idea using constant motion. We ended up co-writing this together. I wrote the melody that floats above the rhythm pattern, then Brennan added multiple guitar tracks to build it up further. The title came from the title of a book by Charles Portis that Tom Russell gave me. The track seems to take off dynamically in the mid-section, suggesting the book title.
