"I wrote this one November inspired by nature during the change of seasons when snow comes to cover the autumn leaves. There on the edge of life’s descent into dormancy, for one brief moment it seemed as if time stood still. Within that moment was a haunting and unforgettable melody, capturing the final transition of autumn into winter. "

Untitled Love Song
"Years ago I spent one afternoon in an art gallery. Some of the paintings were left untitled, and I noticed that it left me with an opened ended interpretation of the artist's paintings." Captured in this composition are many of love's subtle textures and emotional colors depicting the joy, lament, longing and hopefulness of the universal love experience.
"Remembering how I felt that day in the art gallery, I wanting to leave the title of this work profoundly "untitled" so the listener would not have any preconceived ideas, affording the listener the freedom to paint their own personal experience in a love song, open to pursue the compelling mystery but ever elusive charm known as love. "
Composed and performed by Munro DeJohn.

"Notes To Myself As A Composer"
By Munro DeJohn
"As a composer, if I can create a beautiful melody with richness in harmony, and if I can transport my listener
to a peaceful or reflective place in their heart by hearing my music, then I feel I have created something beautiful, something wonderful.
Music has a way of transforming your physiology, and with a sigh of relief can and will relax you. It can make you feel vibrant, or bring you back to a sweet time in your life, recognitive memory, allowing your mind to relive those memories as if you were experiencing them again for the first time. Just by hearing that melody, you become transcended in time! "
