"Flower Waltzes" was probably the one project into which I have poured the most love and joy. I originally intended to compose only 16 songs but, just as soon as those waltzes were completed, I was hit with a massive tidal wave of creativity and inspiration. I knew then that there were not 16, but 64 waltzes in my suite, and that the other 48 had been waiting patiently in the back of my mind to be composed all along. To gather inspiration for the suite, I browsed the works of thousands of prolific artists who painted flowers in many different styles; but even after I had composed all 64, my work was still not complete. I created this single album, "Flower Waltzes (Nature)", containing extended versions of all 64 melodies combined with ambient sounds of nature, wind chimes and animals along with calming and uplifting binaural beats . The single purpose of this album was to create something that would evoke love, joy, peace, and harmony within all its listeners. Once I was done composing every tune, every melody, harmony, rhythm, intro and outro, I created exhibitions, featuring the colorful artwork of all the wonderful artists who inspired it. You can see the works of all of these artists on the player at the bottom of this page. This was a lengthy endeavor and, due to a 3 month + injury in January, the enitre project (all parts of it included) took me a little over a year to complete.
