I approach music from the point of view of self-realization, and self-awareness, where you become awakened to your conditioning, your embodied aesthetics, and psychological tendencies. The act of composing allows us to confront our own listening strategies and the goal, for myself at least, is to work through my conditioning towards the discovery of new modes and conditions of listening.

As such, music maintains a paradoxical, and multi-dimensional nature for me. Does it represent a language, a situation or a gesture? Does music represent a contemplative art or a sensing art? Can music’s role be merely entertainment or can it have effects socially, politically, spiritually or even biologically? I present no answers to these questions, since I believe it is not up to us to choose one path but to investigate and explore all paths. From this, we may discover not what music is but what it could be.
