… from bursting suns escaping …

composer

 
Energy of unseen light
From bursting suns escaping
Out into the clear night
Of distant eyes awaking

An enduring concern with the nature and significance of sound and music was powerfully present while writing this piece. Why do we compose and listen to music? What does sound do to (and for) us? I began to think of light as an analogy for sound, both being kinds of life-forming energy. Just as light is necessary to our physical existence, sound leaves deep impressions on our inner life, our spirit. Both are sources of transformation, but whereas the fruits of light-energy are clearly visible, the interior impact of sound-energy is invisible.
