"When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest." -- Henry David Thoreau, 1857
Steve Layton (whose homepage is here) says:
In my work, traditional and "imaginary" modern classical mix it up with electronic, historical, and world vernacular influences; a kaleidoscopic language that operates on a number of different levels and makes for an often dense, but rich and colorful, music. Since the mid-1980's I've been working and composing in Seattle, creating both concert and recorded music as well as music for dance, film, and video.
