In a room (2002)
(2002) for solo guitar, was co-commissioned by guitarists Jürgen Ruck, Munich, Germany, and Michael Strutt, Vancouver, Canada, with the assistance of the British Columbia Arts Council.
Although I am always conscious of music as a temporal art, writing music seems to begin with a sonic image. My concern is to work closer to the essence of the image and to allow the music to radiate from the sound source outward, blurring artificial distinctions between harmony and timbre, material and instrument.
