A flame flickers
in the darkness while the ancestral artist crushes pigments in his
mouth. His fingers are caked with shades of red, black, and ochre. He
flakes the crust off and places his hand on the wall of the cave and
begins sputtering through a small reed, stenciling his handprint upon
the rock. As he finishes he pulls his hand away and wipes the oozing
pigment from the corners of his mouth… From the
earliest cave painters to the modern artist sitting in a dark room
where the glow of the screen bathes her face; from the ancient
musicians playing drums prior to the hunt, to current day maestros,
there is a commonality in all artistic expression, a commonality born
of the human condition. There is a realization of the Infinite Horizon
that lies within, a need to express the Infinite in finite form, to
circumscribe the Un-circumscribable. To describe love when it defies
articulation; to allow one to taste desire and bathe in starlight when
the ears are the only portals to this experience - this is the goal of
the musician. This internal reflection has as its source the experience
of the Divine, an experience that has been an indicator of "humanity"
all through its history. The title track for this album describes the
artist's lot: becoming a locus of expressive creativity by bringing
together experience, inspiration that comes from the Infinite Horizon
within and materials that have their origins in creation, so that
others can better perceive themselves. It is a reflection on the
process that led to the recording of the songs that precede it. The
rest of the album is a compilation of experiences that hopefully paints
an image in the wall of your soul that lets you see yourself in a
different light. If this compilation of experience and expression have
found a resonance in your heart, than my simple wall paintings will not
have been in vain…
