In a world where adventure calls and the intrepid answer… where the daring explore a mystifying world of Dream and Thought… where heartbreak twists into furious desperation… where virtuosic fits of funkiness stare brazenly into the face of danger… where forgetfulness drives discovery and hope…
In this world, Leviathan — a creature that haunts the Ancient Depths — lies in wait to strike upon those that seek its legendary might!
Who will win this contest of wills? The stirring waves bear witness to this eternal struggle…

“The composer comes first. In the beginning was the Note, and the Note was with God; and whosoever can reach for that Note, reach high, and bring it back to us on earth, to our earthly ears – he is a composer, and to the extent of his reach, partakes of the divine.” -Leonard #Bernstein (“Varèse, Koussevitzky, and New Music” speech delivered May 23, 1963 at The Plaza Hotel for an International Music Fund event paying homage to Edgard Varèse)
I think that music should be collective hysteria and magic, violently modern… I have a horror of discussing verbally what is so smugly called the problem of aesthetics… I prefer to return to my lined paper.

Tryin’ to recall the revelatory statement I gave to my excellent student Jean last night at her lesson….. It went something like this:
“The violin is an incredible tool by which one is able to touch and thereby experience in a very real way the abstractness of music…. (In other words) It creates a way for music to become touchable and real.”
Once in a while I come up with some pretty deep stuff…. 😉
