Shikata Ga Nai is a composition for electric guitar quartet that is based on the experiences of those that served in the Japanese Internment camps during World War II. This topic is one that has interested me for quite a while, but I'm finally now realizing my goal to take these experiences, stories and images and create a new composition with all of this in mind.
The project will culminate in live performances around Boston in the fall, part-new music performance, part-telling of history. The Kickstarter is to help raise the funds necessary to get the accompanying music recorded and released, on both LP and various digital formats.
