In What Language 

Just A Note:

Vijay Iyer and Mike Ladd were awesome. I felt a lot of reverence for this piece. It was inspiring and really well done. Vijay Iyer and all the musicians were brilliant and a wholly satisfying entity on their own. Mike Ladd is a tremendous wordsmith... My mind was constantly blown by the fact that he wrote all of this. It is a poetic opera and he wrote several parts in different voices and languages. While each voice felt unique enough to be believable there is a core of strength, tough resilience and nod to the metaphysical that is present in each of these character's words that makes Mike's presence as supreme being felt. So get out there and see this tomorrow. One of my favorite lines was, "Traffic and bloodvessels move in the same way. I've seen it in movies obsessed with the sky."
