Have some new tune ideas that I’m working on. One of them is a little ditty about this guy: Gustav Robert Kirchhoff
These fine fellows were the subject of my Bachelor’s thesis. They made seminal discoveries demonstrating the in-retrospect-simple concept that objects in the sky (the sun, the moon, the stars and the planets…) can be analyzed by chemical techniques used on Earth. Even better, they showed that a popular celestial object–ye olde Sol–is made of materials also found on Earth. Seems pedestrian now, but it was a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster of a mind shift at the time.
So, I wrote my BA thesis on their work. 16 years later, it seems like I ought to do a song, too. Exciting, I know.
