Christopher Cromwell: The Note

Saturday Signing

Bertrand is a street musician who’s often found screaming on the boulevards and squares of Amsterdam. Most chose to ignore him…that is, until his synapses line up giving him the ability to make music that is divined from the ether. It’s been said that music is one of the only activities that activates, stimulates, and uses the entire brain. Could Bertrand’s music be a conduit to our shared celestial mind—the medium bridging the conscious to the unconscious world? Many of the Gypsies and Street-people who follow him like a God believe so.

What they don’t know, is that Bertrand was a child prodigy back in the U.S., a child of wealthy New Yorkers with an inheritance that others want to take charge of. They want him back on his meds that control his schizophrenia and render him docile, meds that close the door to his musical genius…and his ability to touch others to the very core of their being.

Christopher takes you into the depths of Bertrand’s world, a world sizzling with music and the characters on the fringe that make it on its most primal level. And alternately, into the world of those that could care less, whose only motivation is money.
