I’m happy to be joining the students of Mssng Lnks, under the direction of my brother Sam, for another performance. “Who’ll Be A Witness” is an original piece inspired by the amazing play Witness Uganda. Sam invited the students to write mantras and other pieces. I and classical composer Seunghee Lee then had the opportunity to put some of their words to music.
We’ll be premiering Who’ll Be A Witness on Friday, June 20 at The Community Music Center of Boston 34 Warren Ave, Boston, MA 02116. The show is free and starts at 7:00pm. I was really inspired by the words of these young people and I believe you will too.
On the dark side of memory
You stand holding the cards
Life and death
Ecstasy and pain
Past present and future
The wisdom of the other dimensions
1 eye opens and the other 2 slowly close
Consciousness evaporates and all I’m left with is…
Thoughts dance in the sanctuary of gratitude
