Fantasme

“Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies.” This quote by the British philosopher Alan Watts can inspire us to love and appreciate music in all its forms. We subconsciously experience joy when we hear music - an act that comforts us in the lonely, dark universe. Once I had experienced such joy when I heard a melody by Mozart. I immediately realized that I found an idea that ignited my senses and feelings. In order to give this musical thought a new perspective, I began to disintegrate it into basic elements from which I could build a new meaning. The result was Fantasme - a sequence of contrasting musical images, an emotional journey that could take the listener in an unexpected direction.
