Liner notes

As with all of my music, my hope is to create imagery among strong central themes. "Ascension" is the focal point of this collection. It conveys a bit of intensity and is one of my most expressive pieces. I original wrote this theme with lyrics and a different title, but after consulting with my team, we found the final arrangement to have a "lifting" quality. I like to name my pieces with simplicity allowing the mind to explore further while experiencing the music.
