The Elements (2007)
"I have always loved writing poetry, almost as much as I love writing music, so I decided to conceive a piece with my own texts and my own music working in tandem. 'The Elements' was the result. While a bit cliché, the idea of the four elements - earth, air, fire, water - have always been interesting to me, and I wanted to capture the essence of each element with four different musical languages. The product of this process, I think, turned out wonderfully. I was young in my musical training when I started these pieces, and I am currently in the process of revising and orchestrating them."
