Volume 1 includes ten musical pieces mostly focused on the theme of locomotion. Through walking, running, galloping, skipping, slow walking, dance steps etc., the pulsation, which is the basis of music, is incarnated in the body. The pulsation (beat), in the body, results in steps. You cannot experience the beat outside of the musical phrase. Between the beat and the musical phrase, there is the grouping of the beats which creates the measure and the grouping of the measures which creates the phrases.
From pulsation to measure, and then to phrasing, Volume I brings together these musical notions intimately linked to each other, which give life and meaning to the musical discourse.
