The Letters of Dr. Kurt Gödel

by Levi Weaver

A concept album loosely based on the "humanization" of Dr. Kurt Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem. Stylistically, it ranges from the reverent to the desperate; Lyrically, it details the chase for meaning, sanity, a little peace...

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It would be quite a challenge to write an entire album about a theorem by a mid-twentieth-century logician. In fact, I daresay I couldn't have done it if that had been what I set out to do. But somewhere in the middle of trying to make a "progressive country" album, I discovered some of the works of Dr. Gödel, and realized that's exactly what had happened.

As the protagonist chases Romance, Success, and Religion in the search for meaning, he finds himself at a conclusion: we are incomplete. What that means for his search for meaning and hope? I'll let you listen and find out.
