The sound of summer, a drone, a noise, and annoyance, an immortal being: the cicada has me hissing in a late day requiem to Summer.

  1. Thanks as always to Roger 3000 for providing Something Like's jingle.
  2. Special thanks to Harkeerat Mangat for his invaluable thoughts and wisdom in relation to Dhrupad, Raga, and Indian Classical Music in general.
  3. The book Harkeerat mentions and I read from is Amit Chaudhuri's Finding the Raga: An Improvisation on Indian Music.
