Biography

The music I am sharing at this site is really a reflection of the joy of creation, and I am grateful to icompositons for the opportunity to make it available to anyone who might like to give the music a listen. The GarageBand and Logic Express programs have really opened up a new creative world for me. I have always found that spontaneous improvisation was more satisfying to me than composing (putting notes on paper), tho I have done some of that over the years, too. Most of my music here has been improvised and it has been a mystery to me where it is coming from. I think everyone has this inner well of creativity that we can tune into. I find my tuning in to it a compelling journey with each passing day, and I now have completed 73 years. Thanks for listening to my music and it would make me happy to know that some of it may resonate with you.
