Somewhere toward the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one I found the strength to return to music and focus on creating a longform ambient piece that would reflect the sense of calm I had regained following a major crisis in my life. I came across a message posted on a blog (of all places) that seemed to speak directly to me and Complex Silence 15 was created while this thought was drifting through my head:
“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.” (Author Unknown)
Complex Silence 15 is about calm in the midst of the thousand and one things and finding stillness, tranquility, peace, and a reason to hope. May this music help you to find a similar space and an internal silence that reflects a deeper, more profound peace in your own life.
