the door (best) long-necked saz

this tune or sequence has numerous floating tonics, or what
might pass for tonics. there's a door in the body of the saz
and i open it half-way through; at that point, the deeper
drone notes come through and what seemed a surface scratching
takes on amazing weight. there is a message in the descent
over the long reach of the instrument, and playing it is, in
itself, a beautiful and somatic experience.
