This tune is inspired by M. John Harrison's Kefahuchi Trilogy which includes Light, Nova Swing, and Empty Space. What would happen if the horn and guitar section of a funk band passed through an arm of the Kefahuchi tract? What would the resulting music sound like? Kefahuchi Funk, like the rest of the Post Funk Glitch I've been experimenting with, is a possible result.

The bass riff is played on a Chapman Stick Bass. Yes, the tablauture is correct. The Stick Bass has 8 strings.
The version on SoundCloud is divided into 16-bar sections, but more recently I've been playing it with 8-bar sections instead. Like most of the Post Funk jams that I've been playing around with, the bass riff is repeated a few times in one section and the next section is improvised.
