"Swells into a complex sea of instrumentation, the perfect example of Peter's mastery at combining many different musical elements." - Heidi Boas
"Vibraciones producidas por un encuentro con el Santuario Interno ..." - Luz Marina Umbasia
Bogota 2009 and a trans Atlantic flight to Brussels 2010.
Beginning with a stark piano line and declaratory vocal, “Messages” adds string instruments, drums and voices until it attains what I hope is a unique blend of rock and classical music. We made a conscious choice to exclude electric guitars. Heidi Boas sings the choral vocals in the post-crescendo dreamscape. I am often the sole seat lit in an otherwise dark plane somewhere over the ocean in the middle of the night. In those moments I confront dissatisfaction – and the sublime.
I may feel at last in privacy of night.
A stoic failing on a trans Atlantic flight.
And I dream of mortality and light
In the Sea of Tranquility tonight.
For I passed up a rose, and lying in repose
Await the ends I chose.
Gray regime presses on my spine.
Boys of Bogotá brandishing their knife.
And I dream of mortality and light.
In a sea of tranquility tonight.
For the ends I chose are lying in repose
Await, awake I know.
