Butterflies for Vicki

This was the photograph of the butterflies release. It was a little chilly and the butterflies seemed reluctant to take off. I liked the geometric shapes in this picture and the see through boxes. A bit of a odd surreal image. Meadville Tribune photograph by Richard Sayer

Musical Tribute

Avian (Dedicated to Vicki Van Meter) (6:47)

I hope you enjoyed the piece, as I still do. Even though I was a bit older when I heard Vicki’s story, she became a personal hero to me, an example that age means nothing, if you have the determination and passion. I took from her example and started playing music and recording pieces like the one dedicated to Vicki while still being young, and before I ever had any access to a professional studio. It inspired me to write this piece, in which I really tried to musically express the serenity of flight.
