"I have lived to tell tales of Sphinx-like Renewals; of hopes within Silent tombs, and shattering truths in the midst of deaf hypocrisy.
Never again will I agree to sustain the cowardliness of Destruction. Never again will I be silenced, whenever witnessing Horror or Injustice."
"I will never cease to love Opera, this enormous, untameable animal with several breaths and twenty hundred pulses..."
"The Arts related to the Stage are a great modern Forum, in the Greek sense: a place to expose and analyse human emotions, via their actions...
"The exuberance in their embroideries, encrustations (etc) reflect a keen observation of their environment, as well as a remarkable intellectualisation of its reality."
"I hid under a stain,
Ten oboes heart-broken...
I lived in Her disdain,
For songs I had stolen!
Her hands were white and fair,
I wept and she remained.
Her true love well-spoken,
Her hands were fairer then.
Where trees have not fallen,
My broken heart sings on...
Where scores have not begun,
I have not loved in vain."
Broken Maestro, opus 5
"This phenomenon is the equivalent of an under water achievement, where, in a parallel scientific system, laws of gravity no longer apply in the same fashion: bodies, ships and wrecks become virtually weightless."
Monteverdi's Vespers, Et Misericordia
I am currently working on Textile Therapy methodologies. I am intrigued by the various messages as sent to the eye and/or hand and body: I am exploring their full potential, in terms of healing for the mind.
I am also developing techniques and workshops for Music Therapy theories, based on storylines within orchestral scores.
I am applying for a PhD in Music Psychology.
Thank you in advance.
