Feeling Healing Music

Dreaming of Wings photo As a composer of music that sometimes is described as healing, I was recently asked by a wise friend about how I find closure in a piece. To be sure, when we create, whether music, poetry, a painting, we are healing something within ourselves. And that “something” I’ve learned almost always resonates with others and offers them a healing experience similar to that of our own. In the sharing lies connection, that powerful exchange, in which music is so beautifully alive for us!
But during this particular conversation, the topic came up due to my concern about feeling unable to “finish” new music for my next album. Yes, it’s all been recorded, and mixed and re-mixed and changed subtlety again and again and…yes, it’s becoming a problem. And then my friend posed the question “Are you unable to let go of this music because it is still healing you?” I sat with that question for weeks. Nothing really ever is done or complete or final in the sense that time holds us in a constant state of change, which changes everything. But maybe we just point to a moment in time that says “this is here, now” and send it out to be felt, experienced, witnessed and free. Earlier this month I gave myself wings. I believe it’s time to do the same with this new music. MQwings2018
