Giving significance to sounds is a function of emotion and intellect.

Experiencing aural imagery in the inner ear of imagination to complement the sights and sounds of the surroundings, I work to bring these peculiar impressions and perceptions into compositional and concrete forms.

Part, Whole, Monad

Every change effects every other change.

The totality is glimpsed, heard in fragments, felt within and without, rather than experienced directly.

If and When

Culture will not long conform to the expectations of those who attempt to manipulate it.

The myriad aspects of cultural relationships rise and fall according to the totality of their diverse natures, limiting possibilities of domination and control by virtue of impermanence and change.

Those who realize this act accordingly, in the arts and in every aspect of human endeavor.

Changing and Changeless

Consciousness is music, the vibration and pulse of being.

The river remains the same, being in a continuum of change.  This is life in the moment now through all times and places, at every age and in every direction, and it is so in the eye of imagination.

Now listen to the river, and hear it flow with the inner ear.

Clarity, Simplicity

Beyond interminable expression of inflamed passions, set expansion of consciousness to music-- that is to say, design sound works complementary to the opening of the mind, in harmony with the satori of spiritual, intellectual and aesthetic realization.

Everyone experiences various degrees of direct perception from time to time; those for whom it is a rare event sometimes err in believing it to be of a mystical nature.  It is no less an epiphany, even so, to set aside ego, symbol, perspective, emotion and world-view to gain wider, deeper, contemplative awareness with its associated insights.

The art of sound may indeed convey such engagement with life, as well as other concepts beyond those of emotional attachment and obsession.

Wind Through Clotheslines

Mundane views of music are self-perpetuating.  The art of sound may represent more, for example, than crude, naive emotions and transient attitudes.

Look up from the work of the day, drawn, not by a distraction, but by an irresistible perception.  It is an epiphany leading to a contemplative state of mind; some see it as awareness of the unity of self, soul, and reality.

To convey such experience through sound is to uplift and intensify meaning, consciousness, and being.

Seeing, Listening. Being, Patience.

Observe the unexpected.

Awareness of the emergence of patterns that develop at a distance from those deemed regular and constant demands foresight.  Discernment balances idea and action, envisioning possibilities in the progress of experience through sense perception, symbolic thinking, moral reason, and restraint.

Meaning must be made manifest within the artist to be revealed through the arts. Finding the unique within one's experiential setting, though arduous, opens the eye of imagination and the inner ear.

Insight is not effortless.
