You cannot measure one's music ability by simply assessing how many years one has played an instrument or the price of his instrument. Ability is measured in performance. It speaks through one's driving emotions. Without heart, all effort is for naught. And so I pour my heart out in my music and invite you to hear my dreams. Enjoy.
The nature of creation lies within all, for all who exist have naturally been created. From silence, sound and form emerge and just as it is our nature to create, true music comes naturally and effortlessly, tapping into the natural pulse and feelings of universe.
On Western Composition:
Just as we recite poems, prayers, scriptures, or any literature with the words of a language, music is recited, performed, and cherished without limit. Compositions explore such deep intention, emotion, feeling, and meaning. A composition is not simply a collection of black dots and lines on paper but a living story in a language that can be understood all over the world. Music has the power to heal, to hurt, to touch, and to pass through barriers and borders. It is through intention that we communicate and manifest our desires, and with strongest and purest intention, the best music is made.
