About this work:
Morning Mist , was the second piece I wrote using MIDI. It was inspired by a Robert Plant recording I had recently listened to. At the time, I was living in Kapalua, Maui, and the mornings there were touched with divinity. The condo I was staying in had views of Lanai and Molokai, together with tropical flowers, green hills and giant pines sloping down to the ocean. Most mornings a brilliant red and singing cardinal visited my lanai. It was in this idyllic setting that I wrote Morning Mist for strings. To this day, the music conjures memories of an almost Eden-like beauty and simplicity for myself.
