The Advantages of Floating in the Middle of the Sea – Pacific Overtures (with Rob Urbinati)
The opening song to Pacific Overtures. Is it meant to be an explanation of the idyllic world Japan was in, or is it a warning about he dangers of isolationism? Luckily, Kyle doesn't have to figure that out alone as he has Rob Urbinati, a person who has seen the original Pacific Overtures dozens of times.
