I’ve just finished this series of pieces (seven in all). I have always dreamed of exploration in space, and what travelling to other planets would be like. And then the thought struck: “Subways on Mars”. I had a series name!
I’m always thinking of new inspiration points to get my compositions going, and I start with something that provokes my mind, gets the imagination working, and can get into my subconscious. This one worked well for me. When I’m actually composing (which is something that happens in real time as I play) I’m not trying to paint pictures of the idea; rather, I’m in a moment of imagination that keeps moving forward. Of course, I have no idea how a listener will respond, but therein is the magic of music!
Here is the link to the series:
It opens in a new window. Hope you enjoy them.
