Program Notes

Recorded in 1995 on the CD “Changes Inside,” Flying Nowhere combines elements of jazz and modal grooves with a driving pulse describing the emotions of separation and arrival between my home country, Germany, and the United States, which was my second home for fifteen years. Written after flying home for my first visit in Europe after having moved to North America, Flying Nowhere was a soul searching attempt to understand more clearly what it meant to be a foreigner, and to never be able to experience home in quite the same way after having lived abroad. At that time, I felt between worlds, and nowhere at home, but now the piece has come to symbolize something else – that i don’t need to fly anywhere else to be at home within myself.[1]
