Music Box Dancer

'The music in me is a music box dancer.'

An abiding memory from my first lessons in piano was the work "Music Box Dancer" made famous by Richard Clayderman. Now that I have returned to composing, song writing and playing for fun, I'm finding that there's a component of this process now working itself into my art - and my imagination is constantly dancing. Late late nights that finish with me at the keyboard, working through a melody that came to me while drawing - starting out the evening practicing guitar and writing lyrics that then find symbolic life through the images. It's a continuous reciprocal connection that is bonding vision, image, sound and music with lyric, words, thoughts - and then most importantly, everyday life.
