  • are you going to write more songs

    David Steele

    Are you going to write more music like the struggle of the turtle to the sea or like solitude where its smooth and intense too because I love that about your music. And I would love to hear more of your style in new music. I am a jazz violinist and I want to become a composer and write music like yours. Do you have specific techniques you use to warm up and within your music like licks and phrases. Do you have any tips on writing music. And I'm 14

  • Titles and science


    Hi Evans, sorry for the delay.....I wanted to respond in detail to your question about relation between my titles and science. My wife Claudia found "The Struggle of the Turtle to the Sea" in 1977, when she heard the long suite I just wrote at the time that develops into different sections she thought of a documentary she had just seen on TV about baby sea turtles struggling from the beach to the ocean as soon as they are born. She also found "Wandering On the Milky Way", my violin sound through long echo evoked flying in space and we searched for a title that would reflect our interest into space discoveries and astronomy in general. I came up with "Life Cycles" and "Forms of Life" because the way these pieces start with small groups of notes and rhythms that slowly evelove by changing or adding just one note or rhythm evoked for me the evolution and mutation of genes and cells. I am only a musician with no scientific education and just read a few books written by scientists who manage to make it fairly easy to understand, so that I am a bit less ignorant.

  • Science/Environmental Themes?

    Jean-Luc, as I've said before I'm a new fan getting to know your albums. As an environmental biology student, there are many song titles that grab my attention - "The Struggle of the Turtle to the Sea", "Wandering on the Milky Way", "Life Cycles", "Once a Blue Planet" and "Forms of Life" among others. Can you shed some light on your interest in science and how these themes came into your work?

  • New Fan!

    Evan Hammond

    Charleston WV US

    Hello! As a new fan, it has been a great joy to get to know your music album by album. I'm very much enamored with "Civilized Evil" at the moment. I've recently taken up the violin after 15 years of my youth seriously invested in guitar and your playing is just an inspiration in the most joyful sense. I'm aware of the limitations of my age and muscle memory with regard to my playing potential, but the allure of the instrument is too powerful to sway me. I just wanted to say thanks for your work, as it pushes me to learn a new way to express myself and hopefully develop my own voice.
