A Pattern Music, as its name suggests, is based on a number of musical patterns which weave together into the piece. For me, it is a continued exploration of reducing musical materials to their absolute basics - single, expressive lines - and allowing them to fully develop in carefully controlled ways.
The music has a meditative quality although never in a passive, static sense: more like the captivating power and fascination I find in visual forms that result from naturally occurring and altering iterative patterns and processes.
