Album Notes
As early as my first compositions back in 1998, a common thread connected most of my pieces. Film music has been a dominant inspiration to me dating back to even before I began composing. There was a passion and feeling that came through the greatest film scores, turning the composers into storytellers in their own right. They were telling their own stories on top of the one the director told on-screen. This aesthetic would creep into my own music, with each piece taking the listener on a musical journey by tapping into a sort of emotional truth that may be abstract in execution, but palpable in its specificity.

The pieces on this album are emblematic of this approach to music. Whether it's an abstract tone poem inspired by a comic book series like "Calling of a Warrior," a technically and structurally clever look at musical sensuality as in the "Passionate Illusions" cycle, or if it's a musically evocative set of pieces inspired by the darker recesses of art as in my quartet of macabre works that begin the album, I've continued to find interesting and challenging ways to push myself further as an artist and as a storyteller. I hope you enjoy!
