'The Seagull' motif

"Mirrors of Light" is work I’ve been immersed in for the last couple of years which has resulted in a piano sonata: Mirrors of Light 1, and a single movement piano work: Mirrors of Light 2, plus a multi-arts collaboration in the renowned and historic Reitstadl Hall, in Neumarkt, Germany and a recorded album of the same name.
