THE PHASES OF EVE

The Phases of Eve is like a poem. THE SOURCE sets the theme with allusions to a Scottish setting defining a positive, almost melancholy start to life. The mood grows somber, then light, then there's sunshine, chaos, befuddlement, sadness, and grief. Within all this there is nostalgia which is created by remembering the theme from THE SOURCE. This memory is sometimes invoked through a few subtle notes in a minor key, or may emerge from a passage where the connection is loud and clear.
