Dead Souls is based entirely on the Cuban Son rhythm. It takes a catchy minor melody and develops it with many variations. The title is taken form the great unfinished novel by Nikolai Gogol. The poet Pushkin, said of Gogol that "behind his laughter you feel the unseen tears", The Son to me feels exactly like that, and so I pair these two unlikely companions in art in this short guitar composition.
