is a neurotic New York jazz pianist, stumbling through his half-baked career. He's the kind of guy who walks out of the bathroom with toilet paper trailing away from his shoe. He hears a few seconds of a mysterious recording of piano music on the radio that burns his soul. The unknown music begins to transform him and he starts to experience extra- sensory perceptions. His obsessive quest to ﬁnd out the identity of the pianist on the recording leads him through a series of outrageous gigs and in and out of his own slightly off-kilter imagination. Things always seem to go utterly wrong for David, and he finds himself embroiled in a murder, a death-music cult and a mystical battle of the bands.
This is a story of a musician's search for his real self,
and of music's power to transform the spirit.
