Coming Home is an instrumental concept album based on my own journey and life experiences, combined with mythology from Joseph Campbell's hero's journey. This new release is the culmination of 2 years of composing, performing, and personal growth.
Though 8 tracks in total, Coming Home can be considered a single work of music, and my first definitive opus, meant to be listened to from start to finish - part of a comprehensive and connected journey. The lead voice of the cello can be considered a personification of both the larger mythological idea of the hero as well as my own journey - or yours.
Coming to grips with human suffering, the hero embarks on a journey in search for answers, self-realization, and a ultimately a reclamation of the self. The hero's voyage begins with entry into a supernatural world, followed by an epic, mythological descent into the Underworld to wage war with demons, both literally and metaphorically, a spiritual death, and lastly a return home bearing the fruits of rebirth.
