Chaos Theory by David Cohen

david cohen guitar chaos theoryChaos Theory is my 2nd studio recording of original pieces. The compositions are purely me living  in my world of rhythm and melody. The music was composed between July 2014 and December 2015; each peice written for and on an Ovation classical guitar. The guitar used in the Chaos Theory recording is an Ovation classical cutaway, model 1773AX.

Signals by David Cohen from Chaos Theory

Chaos Theory is six stories. Each story is rooted an individual’s fight for health and security. In the piece that closes the recording, A long Memory of Kindness, my inspiration behind the piece came from a brief period of time with a person that lost the ability of movement from the neck down. Slowly minor movement was visible in one arm.  When it was time to move on in the continuum of care the person told me that the goal was to write a letter to say thank you. The person went on to say, “I have a long memory of kindness. When I can, I want to write everyone who has helped me to thank them. People have been so kind.”

A long Memory of Kindness was written to close out Chaos Theory presenting the most fundamental premise; kindness.
