From the recording Transcendent Gift
A lot of the time, I wake up in the morning and there's a melody in my head. By the time I drink some coffee and get myself going, it's usually gone. But on Monday, for some reason, the melody stuck around and so I decided to record it. I called it 'Transcendent Gift' because that's exactly what these melodies that come to me in my sleep seem to be....gifts from some transcendent source.
In the past few days, I've been making a real effort to jot down and remember the melodies that come to me seemingly out of nowhere.
Sometimes I wonder if beautiful melodies are discovered more than they are composed. Maybe they already exist somewhere in the cosmos and we just have to tune them in, like tuning in to a radio station.
