Short Stories 1
It is a carnival ride of vignettes, thickly wrapped around themes of lust and passion, death and rebirth, redemption and salvation.

Lordrifa is tireless in his carnivorous pursuit of all things musical. Not only are the tales reminiscent of origin stories of biblical and Greco-Roman mythological proportions, but he masterfully represents this in his secondary themes of the origins of music, incorporating African rhythms, American bluegrass and samurai warrior calls, dragging the ancient music into our world. Devolution as evolution. It's the origin story of music as much as it is Lordrifa's.
