Written for Eight Strings and a Whistle, Third Eye and the Inward Journey (Two Journeys) represents separate but connected journeys towards self-awakening, awareness, enlightenment and greater spirituality.

The first Journey, Third Eye, begins with a solo flute line; a long, mid-range F# (one of the more mystical-sounding flute tones, to me). Quickly flowing from that F# is a rapid group of six* repeating notes. This solo represents a brief ceremonial calling- willingness -to open and seek one’s inner truth. Thus, the odyssey can begin.

The three instruments share similar energy- the viola and cello vibrating wood via bowed or plucked strings, the flute using life breath to vibrate a silver tube.

Throughout the piece, longer stretches of uneven time signatures and differing lengths of sustained notes enable listeners to experience a feeling of being in the moment without measuring time as we do in the physical plane.

Third Eye ends much like the opening with a single suspended flute note, but now with a high E. A seventh above the opening tone, the higher E symbolizes the seventh chakra (the crown chakra) which relates to pure consciousness.
