In 2005 I was lay-ordained as a Zen practitioner by Tenshin Reb Anderson, who gave me the dharma name Fuen Eigaku, or "Circle of Wind, Eternal Music". I knew this was a particularly apt title for my interior musical life, for as a performer on a wind instrument I was fascinated by the technique of "circular breathing" (playing continuously while breathing in through the nose) as well as being drawn to cyclic music. This recording is thus a collection of my chamber music for saxophone, circles and cycles of wind that arose as expressions of the eternal sounds within.
