Namidabashi was composed in January 2021, almost one year since the onset of COVID19 and the suspension of my touring and performing activities during the subsequent pandemic. Although initially stranded in California, I turned to my home base in Japan after 11 months, and this track was recorded at Radio Free Nakano in Tokyo. But although it was conceived for a recording studio and not as a stage work, in fact I performed it live and the recording you hear is almost entirely in real time, with just a couple of cosmetic edits.

As is always the case, it is better not to read anything in the title, which translates into English as “Bridge of Tears”, as suggestive of the nature of the music itself, as I continue to employ a random method for associating titles to my compositions.
