All these abstract concepts have formed the basis of my compositions. Such a wide canvas led me to a painter’s approach, sketching and filling out not only the melody line but also that of tonal colour, using a rich palette of the colours of sound through the use of a variety of instruments, both scoustic and electronic.
The moods and feelings of the sea are here in these pictures in sound- the colours in seascapes that change from turquoise to jade, while on the horizon things appear and disappear; the nostalgic, old-world harmonies of the Polka with its distinctly Goan-Portuguese air; the deceptively simple beginning and increasing complex patterns of deep blue that end with the crash of waters against rocks, a reminder of the mystery and power of the sea.
