Atmospheres in Motion

Sounds and imagery combine and coalesce in the imagination.

Compose to convey this dynamic that enlivens each listening experience differently.

Bring to light the things that go unnoticed.

Bring forward into the listener's consciousness those sounds that define existence, that reflect the sounds of the earth turning on its axis.

Idea, Emotion, Perception

Music, to some minds, is a narrow concept.

For others, it expresses and heightens awareness.

Seek any direction for inspiration.

Ultimately, it comes from within.

Sensory Clarity

Seek the beauty and the subtlety.

Catch an impression of rain approaching in distant trees, and paint this feeling into the musical canvas.

Ancient Modern

Allow no attachment of sound to "the times".  By this I mean, restrain the impulse to reflect and respond to the transient and impermanent.

Through auditory imagery and aural metaphor, merge time past and time future.

Silence and Sound

Some listeners do not distinguish between individual instruments, respond physically to rhythms, and internalize the emotional impression of a musical work. Some listen with a technical ear, for qualities of cohesiveness and musical technique.

Then there are those who listen with the inner ear, perceiving with the imagination, for whom frost and flame, shadow and light, color and movement and uncanny possibilities emerge into being with every vibration.  Some are children, but most certainly not all.
