Improvisational music for movement, dance, and contemplation.

"Thank you so much for this album, it came out fantastic!"

- Kendra Fehrer, yoga practitioner and activist

Moving Spaces

"I've been playing a couple of John's pieces almost exclusively for my personal movement workouts!"

- Steve Leicash, master drummer

Moving Spaces is John's second cd designed for movement exploration, modern dance classes, and contemplative listening. In addition to John's flutes, piano and world percussions, the music features an outstanding complement of musicians and instrumentation including Peter Jones on percussion, Stephen Katz on cello, John Cantallini on guitar, Jim Flynn on bass, and Miro Sprague on keyboards. The music was developed improvisationally, providing a broad pallete of sounds and moods in which to explore. Percussive grooves, haunting flutes, keyboard improvisations, and tasty guitars inspire the spirit to dance, journey, and create. Meters and tempos are provided with the CD to help dance teachers make quick choices in class.
