I have always believed that composing music is very much like an artist who chooses different colors and hues, that when creatively applied to a blank canvas, may set forth an original and unique idea. Accordingly, I use notes and harmonies as a pallet to choose from, but I broaden the color scheme by adding differing musical styles. Thus, a splash of Latin rhythm, a dash of Classical structure, a pinch of Flamenco texture, along with a large dose of inspiration are just some of the elements I use in my quest to create a compositional hybrid I can call all my own. Ninety percent of the creative foundation of my music comes from nature itself. The sculpted formation of a sand dune, the drop of water on a leaf, the running sound of a stream are all music to me and I curiously find those elements weaving themselves into my musical fabric. I write music not with the hope to tell a story but for each individual to paint their own picture from the various tones, moods, textures and rhythms. I hope you enjoy the journey.
