An evening with Musical Peace Ambassador Jason Carter

October 23, 2009

Jason and Aravind

Dear Omers,

We were fortunate to have a Musical Peace Ambassador, Jason Carter, perform for us at Om with his wonderful Harp Guitar. He even invited a Veena player, Aravinth Kumarasamy, to perform an Indian composition that they did together at a concert in the Esplanade. It was a magical performance and we were all moved by his remarkable compositions. Before playing a song, Jason shared with us an anecdote story about the inspiration behind each piece. He played a piece for us called “Recreation” which was inspired by how he accidentally chopped off the index finger on his left hand with a kitchen knife 2 years ago. This happened on an island off the Baltic Sea with 40 people and no professional medical help. To cut a long story short, the finger was sowed back on after 12 hours at a hospital on the mainland, but it was too late. A week later it fell off and he chucked it in the bin. It grew back after a period of 2 months but he wasn’t able to use his index finger to play guitar for half a year. So “Recreation,” a marvelous track, was composed from using the remaining fingers that he was able to use to play guitar.
