'Of night and light and the half light'. Inspired by the words of the poem;

Aedh, wishes for the cloths of heaven.'

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths, 
Enwrought with golden and silver light, 
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths 
Of night and light and the half light, 
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams; 
I have spread my dreams under your feet; 
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

By W. B. Yeats.

Each title has been taken from the words of the poem and the music has been inspired by those words. Each track speaks differently and reflects my own appreciation for what the words mean to me. It is a reflective yet strong album utilising a full string quintet, electronics, piano and solo violin.

An award winning Australian composer Peter is a true storyteller, meticulously weaving emotion into his work in a way that effortlessly transports the listener into new realms. His music is a collection that moves delicately between that which is calming and that which is utterly breath-taking.

'As is always the way with Peter’s work, the music seems to breathe life and emotion into the room, utilizing quiet as much as colour, making the most out of every moment in order to express a level of truth and uninhibited artistry.'

'You do not even want to take out single tracks of the total of 12 songs, each one has so much heart and fragile beauty, as if a thousand butterflies were dancing around you or you feel like a lonely leaf that is carried by the wind to undiscovered places.'
