Dozens of guitars playing the same open string chord is an impressive sound. Tuning is separating again, but I think the interference patterns add to the sound. Now a third, syncopated rhythm. Amazing feeling of 200 volunteer musicians working together, really moving.

Now another layer of fast strumming, rising in pitch. Asterisk again, pethpas a Coda signal. Exhilerating experience, this is why we make music together.

Huge sound, indescribable. It almost has voices. People standing. Screaming!

Now, quiet, hesitant music. Sparse. Fine. Glorious.
