We need beauty and emotional truth for our sanity. Uneasy melancholy, anger and despair, quirky acceptance, calm, and complete elation, each pulse through our lives and insist that we stare directly, without flinching. When we are most true to ourselves, we neither mince our words nor parse our notes. We communicate as passionately and unabashedly as we wish.


 

""Unabashedly" accomplished something that few composers or pieces of music can: it's music that defies gravity."

Alan Chapman, host, Modern Masterpieces, KUSC-FM radio, Los Angeles
