About eyes cast down

So this is what he has come to… the music of eyes cast down is distilled from a lifetime’s varied artistic and creative reflexes.

Youthful performance anxieties involved high school theatre (drama and musical), sketch comedy (Monty Python & original) and a stint as a rock drummer (playing a bunch of great Rush songs).

Literary ambitions yielded two self-published plays and a three-year intensity of free-form, image-saturated, stream-of-consciousness poems (some published) – all in the early 1990s.

Moving into something resembling responsible adulthood and family life still allowed time for an acoustic guitar/vocal trio, and eventually the Siren sang: the call to composition became clear.

A watershed event was the 1997 workshop Music for the Masses, presented by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. It was a chance to consult with a composer (Martin van de Ven) and have an original short piece (the 3-minute Trio Galactique) recorded by TSO musicians.

The other watershed event was tripping over the world of serious ambience, just after the millennium turned. The rest is … reverb. Lots of reverb…
