I wrote More than a Fantasy originally as an orchestral work on my "Over Downunder" album (about Australia). I've always dreamed of going to Oz... maybe someday I'll get there. This one is about the land, and a tribute to the ladies in Australia (I have had the privilege to know of few in my life....)
Hooroo my Jillaroo... (another song I wrote as well)
The song Eleven Twenty-four was written on that day of the year a couple years ago... My dog Faolan was lying next to me in the studio and he passed the next day... so this song is very special to me as was my friend Faolan.
"Immortal Beloved" has clearly been made by people who feel Beethoven directly in their hearts, and are not approaching him through a classroom or historical setting. Beethoven writes to Schindler at one point, arguing: "It is the power of music to carry one directly into the mental state of the composer. The listener has no choice. It is like hypnotism." - Roger Ebert
