For me,
beautiful music
finds a forward motion in
stark contrast between
austerity and density,
motion and stasis,
consonance and dissonance,
melancholy and exuberance.

In composing,
I strive for symmetry and dialogue
between component and detail
in the formation of a musical architecture.

In this music,
I seek to express a duality of being,
contradiction of meaning,
tension between that which is eternal
and that which is tangible,
opacity and clarity,
mystery and reason.
