This is the central question I have pondered my entire life. It is (in my opinion) the central theme behind all theology, science and physics as well.
Brevity and concision (my main two rules of musical construction) also derive from my drilling down on this essential and existential question. I am certain that my life’s vocation as a musician and composer is the result of my quest to impose order on chaos and to create design from a random source.
In this small and limited way my life’s work is in harmony with my obligation to find some deeper meaning in our existence.
