As the title of the album suggests – this music is about movements, motion, action, activity – my vision for this project was to create a specific feeling. I never want to leave you hanging on one thing – my ideas are to take you somewhere – but at the same time – don’t twist your arm. My first solo CD Great Wall of Sound was a collection of compositions from the last few years – a collection of ideas and musical thoughts that I had been composing for over 8 years (some of the melodic ideas there went back as far as beginning of 1997). With Movements my goal was to create a journey where each track flows into the other – everything is meant to shift and turn – and take you to an undetermined destination. But I am not directing you to one specific spot – rather give you (the listener) the tools and the fuel to start the voyage – where you choose to go is up to you.
I love to mix and match and borrow musical ideas from anywhere. I never set out to make a rock composition, or an Indian composition – but my goal is always to make you feel something or dream away to something. My music is often a fusion of sounds and instruments – electronic music, mixed with guitars, sound design and voices with melodies and percussion.
