The three composers on this release share a Romantic approach, and a desire to describe the intangible and mysterious. Each piece explores an emotional, dream-like world. The daguerreotype (one of the earliest forms of photography) that I used in the graphic, is an image made of light, caught on a polished metal plate and tarnished over time.
