This book and CD are packaged together on the impetus that medium is an opportunity for elucidation, words are a great icebreaker, and internal dialogues are often as fruitful as those that match faces. No one medium ever makes apparent the layers of experience and subliminal thought and action that drive a piece of art. We hope you choose to relish in the interplay between words and music in both products as you traverse through this package. If you find something appalling on disc, make sure that it does not also appall in the text. If you find yourself caught in the rhythm of a tune, ask yourself where you hear it most loudly; in print or on disc?
