How does one write a bio that people find interesting? I’ve heard it’s better to share just one experience than list several. So let me tell one of the turning points of my musical path to date. It’s about what happened in a dream.
I was listening to a radio program and hearing the most beautiful music I’d ever heard. It was so moving it held me in awe and exhilaration. When I awoke, the melody was gone, yet the euphoric feeling remained; and though I tried to remember even the smallest part, it had left. Soon, I was grateful for hearing it at all!
A few moments later came the \"ah-ha moment\" that changed my musical path. I was trying to remember what I’d heard by going over the details of the dream, when I realized the radio like everything in the dream was a product of my mind. That was the turning point -- because the radio was a product of my mind, the music must have been too. Soon the question of who or what put it there arose, and I try daily to align with the answer.
Because of that experience, however, I began adding more orchestration. Now the music is accepted without editing just as it comes in and that sure saves a lot of time! As you listen to samples here, be sure to check Autumn’s Glory. It\'s the piece being considered for a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental (Non-Classical)and also Today, Tomorrow and Always from the CD titled Timely... or from the CD titled Gently... listen to Clouds. Happy listening!
