This is a collection of my orchestral music from eleven years, 1995 - 2006. Forging Utopia was inspired by Mark Kingwell's book, “Dreams of Millennium” and by a channel-changing, cultural mash-up paradigm. “Unseen Rain” takes the listener into the mystical world of the Persian poet Rumi by way of aphoristic miniatures. “Face in the Abstract” is inspired by the canvases of Anselm Keefer and Johannes Deutsch. And “Raven Steals the Light” tells the story of the creation of the world according to the ancient Haida legend, as retold by Bill Reid and Robert Bringhurst.
