Mood Exhibit Such a wonderful collection of emotive neoclassical work. Although driven by memorable and usually festive piano melodies, the inclusion of orchestral embellishments add a perfect robustness. This is music for both contemplation and relaxation. Favorite track: Remembering Who And What We Are.

    The Book of Gifts is also included as a PDF booklet. This features the 13 mythical gifts that were inspired by a photograph of actual gifts given to Gabi Mann by the crows she fed in her garden. The narratives were written in the style of the Tao Te Ching and Alan Baker created the beautiful illustrations in collaboration.

    Additionally I have included the Gifts From Crows Story which is based upon an interview I did for Cut Common Magazine discussing the themes and circumstances that inspired the music.
