Life in the Desert

Long ago, on a hot summer Southern night, a stormy artist was born one month too late.
Raised in North Carolina amongst strict Baptists, the tempest discovered his love of bourbon in an empty bottle behind the barn when he was a tender five years old.
He was musically gifted, and years later in sunny Santa Fe, the ever-active creator built this bourbophone in the bathroom with those familiar empty bottles. It played interesting notes when struck with a mallet.
Of course, days could get hot in the desert too, so cool sounds were appreciated by all.
