Sonic Bonsai

I believe that artists shouldn’t wait to be inspired to create something. They should create their own inspiration. I use a random number generator to produce the seeds of my inspiration. I plant these seeds on the page and I prune and cultivate them as they grow. I add and remove notes, and I experiment with harmonies, dynamics and instrumentation until the music finally takes shape.
I find this process to be extremely enjoyable and I can become so focused on it that everything else that is happening in the world simply disappears. Sometimes for hours at a time. I hope that listeners will enjoy the finished product, and they will feel the amount of love and care that I have poured into my "Sonic Bonsai".
