Album Notes
Stuart Saunders Smith (born 1948 in Portland, Maine, USA) is a confessional composer in the New England tradition. “My music is about my life. I am after the particular, for the revelations of the particular speak to the universal. Composition, for me, is autobiographical. Composing means making sense of my person and personal history. I keep company with myself, and come to understand myself.”

Smith does not compose using any pre-compositional systems or designs. He holds that each sound is intelligent, and when listened to, can direct the course of events in the composition. So Smith listens to each sound to tell him what sound should come next, until the piece is finished.
