Music is a mystery for people who play it, write it, listen to it, and write about it. The only thing I can really do when I try to say something about music is assume.

What Scriabin Looks Like
Scriabin was a composer who heard his music in colors. Norman Perryman is an artist who paints music, sometimes even as it is happening in performance. Perryman and Scriabin together are downright amazing.
I am active as a composer, a violist, a violinist, a recorder player, and as a teacher. I began my professional musical life as a flutist, and spent a lot of quality time as a baroque flutist, but I no longer have my baroque flute. Now my modern flute spends most of its time tucked away in a drawer, while my violin, viola, and my viola d'amore are often tucked under my chin.
