Intuitive master of the Piano
sees and feels the world through his fingers.
Set out on a journey to harness and set free the magical power music has
to heal and mirror life in all dimensions.

The key hammers are carefully tickling,
inviting you to open the hidden doors
to a new but familiar space
where you can listen to the voice of your own beating heart.
