I see composing music as an opportunity for self-awareness. As an artist, I believe composition is an ideal medium for expression. I am greatly influenced by my own struggles, obstacles and accomplishments, and I use music as a means of expressing those feelings and thoughts, when words cannot speak. I feel awakened to explore my personal aesthetics and aspired to create a connection between my music and the listener on deeper levels. While composing, I find a means of self-expression that I cannot express in words, but can express through sound. I believe each line of music tells a story. I strive to create a visual, auditory journey to guide my listeners to explore their own self-awareness, and to use my music as a gateway to finding a sense of closure when overwhelmed with ineffable emotion..Creating music, for me, is an opportunity for self-expression. Our compositions reveal so much about our human side — our loves, our dreams, our fears. Composing provides us with an opportunity to communicate our ‘human-ness’ to those around us. I believe composition is an ideal medium for expression. In my works, I try to create a musical illusion to invoke the realms of our imagination — to help my listeners picture vivid landscapes in their minds. I spend a great deal of time writing for film. I find it very intriguing to isolate the movements of humans and objects in films, and aim to find a way to reveal an inseparable bond between motion and sound.
I continue to have the privilege of working closely with many talented performers, filmmakers, conductors and artists, and I’m able to draw on their knowledge, which makes composition a compelling, collaborative process. My works all follow a distinct style of my own, that is heartfelt, often intense, and unearths my own transcendent experience of music.
