Finding My Zen: The Story of my album Silk
I dug a little deeper into the principles behind the Zen philosophy. What resonated with me is that it's very much about Space, Simplicity of form, and a particular philosophical saying that they have,
“What's not there is just as important as what is.”
Somehow that phrase gave me the key to the way I wanted to write music...
Learning to live with Grace
I would like to say that I wrote this piece of music for you, but the honest truth is, I wrote this piece of music for myself. I created it to remind myself to try to live each day, and each moment of each day, “With Grace”
So what exactly is Grace?
Its holiday time in the small seaside village where I live,
and it's always easy to tell the people who are not from here.
In This Moment
To create the music I embarked on my own personal “journey of love” if you like -
a quest to take myself to the deepest and most intimate places of love that I could,
and to feel an experience them as wholly as I was able to.
