About Me

"Music should not remind us of the control we seem to have over our lives. It should remind us of the necessity to surrender..." Keith Jarrett "Band feeling is more important than bravura" Jon Christensen "Love means to learn to look at yourself the way one looks at distant things. For you are only one thing among many. And whoever sees that way heals his heart, without knowing it, from various ills..." Czeslaw Milosz "Perhaps some of the wisdom to sputter and of being dumbfounded may be the inheritance that our spiritual culture ought to transmit to the next generations." Holderlin "The job of the producer is, very simply, to receive in the best conditions what he is given, and to give it back with the most transparency possible." Manfred Eicher "I proceed from the first sound to attempt to develop a musical continuity that will draw the listener into a world populated with a cast of sonic characters playing out an existence replete with all the emotions that could be suggested in a play or any work of literature." Ralph Towner "To understand is to equal" Raphael "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music." Aldous Huxley "To have culture means being able to see things from someone else's point of view" Hegel
