Drawing on such diverse inspirations as the Great Composers of Classical Music, Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, and many Celtic influences such as Clannad, Altan and the music of Turlough O'Carolan, Michael continues to hone his talents for original sound creation and composition.
It is Michael's ambition to compose music that stirs both the heart and mind. He believes in the imagination as a powerful tool for both discovery and relaxation. As a result of his ability to blend intriguing melodies with rich and unusual sounds, Michael has won a loyal following of listeners who share his vision.
Music is eternally regarded as something that can remind us, or brings us back to a place and time. Michael's CD's do more than that, they create places and time. His music reaches deep inside us, and takes us on a journey. A journey that one is never quite the same after taking. His music is an aural personification of the mind and the soul. A dream within a dream."
MYSTICAL HAUNTS, released in 1995 has won a loyal following among listeners after being featured as the soundtrack for the skyshow "Target Earth" at the Vanderbilt Planetarium in Centerport, Long Island, New York. The CD offers relaxing yet thought provoking arrangements with rich sound textures that create an atmosphere that has a calming effect on the listener.
