The Fool's Journey
The summer of 2015 marked the beginning of my tarot journey. My interest in tarot peaked after receiving a reading from a friend. While researching and learning more about tarot, I became inspired musically. The complex meaning of each card fueled my desire to compose. As I learned more about tarot and composed music inspired by the cards, I found that I was learning more about myself as a person and as a musician. The Fool’s Journey composition project is an exploration of tarot and my own composition style. My goal is to push myself as a musician while transporting listeners into the world of tarot.
