Stars Punctuated by Comets

Thoughts about Gregorian Winter by Vincent Guarino

After listening to the track several times I was amazed at the similarities in your expression with some efforts and explorations put forth by Coltrane in 1962-3 with his various renditions of “Out of this World”, as an example. The beauty of both is the removal of the listener from conventional structure and complexity to more de-constructed form. The impact of greater with less.

Your piece was food for the soul. It was mesmerizingly beautiful. In my mind’s eye I felt the darkness and vastness of space on a autumn night, full of stars punctuated by comets with the earth relaxing between the activities of the day past and to come.

Thank you. I am eager to hear where next your music takes you.
