Music like an effective massage, specific and confident, with clear intention. Its surprises are quiet, pleasing. If you pay attention, you will find things of interest, yet it never insists on being heard, enjoying its own exploration as you enjoy yours.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Here are a few pre-production quotes from friends about "Drawn of Dream":

"People are going to love this, Tom … You have every reason to be excited about this CD."

"Of course i would look for the best if anyone sent me a sample of their creative output, but I truly find your music to~ how to put it... it's so easy for me to be with. I can "be" as i normally am and this music goes with that, it just accompanies that. So, it is a resting place for my soul, to just rest, relax. And it's not the normal easy-listening music, you obviously are well trained classically, drawing upon years of experience. You have the ability to stay with a feeling, to ride the wave fully; there is complete presence in this music."

"THAT was GORgeous. :-) Like being wrapped up and cuddled by music... *grin* I think it's actually my favourite of all of your compositions!"

"It's like the next step in the evolution of New Age."

---------------------------------------------

What follows is an excerpt of thoughts written in my journal during composition of "Drawn of Dream"; the track titles came from the entries of which this is part. It was inspired by an image that came to me while composing. It has to do with creativity and with untrusted and untrusting parts of myself. It feels like having a key. More can be found at the Drawn of Dream site (see my links page).

Best,

~Tom

--------------------------------------

I had just stood up from a session of composing when the image came to me. A gentle and shy part of me, yearning to be heard, and constantly creative, is always trying to reach me. He is always suggesting ideas. But his shyness prevents repeating himself, and he speaks with a quiet voice, never coercive.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Cowboy Tom is busy writing music. Boy, is he working hard, searching valiantly for ideas (and justification for those ideas). He is working so hard, and is so focused doing his good job, that he often takes no notice of the quiet suggestions being offered from a literally unknown source. When he does notice them, he, being fearful, snatches them quickly, not looking from where they come, generally unable to listen with continuity (although there have been a few blessed times when this has been possible).

The quiet one does not care that he gets no credit. He only wants his ideas heard. He is grateful and takes no exception to Cowboy Tom's propensity to want to feel big. He quietly continues to suggest ideas, with the hope that another, however imperfectly translated, might make it out into the world.

excellent
I commissioned this piece for my massage practice thinking Tom would create something pretty and soothing but otherwise unremarkable. However, he put so much into this piece - it's incredibly soothing and yet subtly and gently interesting if you're paying attention to it. I heartily recommend it as a piece for massage and yoga as well as a simple classical piece to keep you company.

Just Beautiful
I have enjoyed listening to "Dawn of Dream" for weeks and love it ! Serenely beautiful. I use it the c.d. as background music as I go about my sometimes hectic day and when I stop for a moment I am transported to that calm place again that settles me down......
