  • Program Notes

    The Inward Journey is a sequel to Third Eye and is the second movement of Two Journeys. This second journey is a very sustained, slow-moving, meditative and probing experience musically, as it is the actual journey (rather than a description) of leaving your world, the physical Earth plane and all things familiar, sometimes including your comfort zone. The journey is hypnotic and it might 'test' your patience, since some phrases don't resolve more immediately as we experience in our popular music culture (and much of Classical music). Nonetheless, there is an energy coming through which overrides the initial Patience Stage- waiting/trying to hear or feel something/settling our thoughts/letting go of where we are as we begin to transition, in order to move into 'being in the moment'.

    The ending of this particular journey feels very mystical to me.
