The first two pieces are based on a Debussy style trio- flute,viola, and harp. They are tentatively the second and fourth movement of a larger work " Transcendental Landscapes".
The third piece, is from the work- "In Aphrodite''s Secret Garden" The fourth movement is featured in my first album " Buffalo Spirit".
The fourth and fifth piece''s are from my string quartet "The Potential of Man"
The last piece" The Taming of Olympus Mons", is based on a homework assignment that I did in May of 2010. I liked the music I wrote for it so much, that I was inspired to expand the work. I always wanted to write a piano concerto, so I dove in. It took me about three months to write it. I wanted to return to my dissonant roots- but with more control over the harmonies, some of which, was based loosely on jazz harmonies. I tentatively have an idea for at least, another movement.
I would like to thank my sister, Monica, for all her support, and the rest of my family, as well. I would like to thank Mario and Lauron, for all their support, they have given me, over the summer. And, of course, George, Chuck, Margarita, and Mr Kruse, from the SGI, for their supprort, while I made this album.
