Abstract/Artist Statement

I feel like the reason that I decided to add an 'R' to the word 'Cannibals' is so stupid and uninspired, that any element of mystique there is in not knowing the title's origin would be lost if the true origin were made known. So I'll just play the "Tortured Composer" card and say it has something to do with my troubled past (squints and stares off into the distance). The music itself is programmatic and essentially unrelated to the title. It opens on a massive and majestic caravel traversing open waters. Then an unexpected storm comes down on the helpless crew. After the storm, there is but one survivor floating in the sun among driftwood. The last section suggests that the survivor finally reaches land, although I'll leave his ultimate survival up to interpretation.
