Stylistically, “Floating Leaves” is a somewhat transitional. Though my music is always spontaneous, my phrases were becoming more deliberately “linked” through different melodic gestures, or harmonic or textural references. I often think of my music as floating on the surface of a body of water. It rides on the waves of motion and emotion that propel the music forward. The titles of each of the movements should be prefaced by the phrase “floating leaves.” (i.e. – Floating Leaves “On a Reflecting Pool” or FloatingLeaves “Flowing Past a Cathedral”)
