DIRECTOR'S WELCOME

"I think often about that time in my youth when I began to call myself a composer:  Slipping over from being of a casually creative mind to a fully intentional one, and no longer feeling like an imposter as I embraced a daily habit of piano practice and composing. Such industry! And over these many years, music has become the most potent form of self-knowledge I have at my disposal: I learn how graceful I am, how disciplined I am, how imaginative I am, how willing I am to take a risk and try something scary-new. I put these endeavors in the context of previous work, and I look down a long humbling vista of where I need to go in the future.

Perhaps there are other disciplines that I could have aimed my life at — I seriously considered political science and law — and who knows where those roads would have led? But my sense of self has developed inexorably along the simple principle of storytelling and creating objects of beauty through sound, leaving the earth hopefully a bit better. As this self-awareness has continued to grow in force and ease, sharing my experiences with my emerging colleagues as well as new, even untraditional, audiences has become both more joyous and urgent."
