PIANO SONATA No. 1
The piano has been a constant presence in my life. It was my first artistic medium, going back to early childhood. Growing up, I thought I would pursue it into a full time career. I studied the greats and practiced religiously. But my life took a few detours, and a “pianist” gradually became something I used to be. Looking back now, I strongly believe I owe my success as a cinematographer and photographer to being a musician first. The piano gave me a heightened sensitivity to mood and atmosphere, a technical foundation, and most significantly, the capacity to connect the heart to the mind.
