I love creating sounds as the Dark Muse... improvising from the first tone or breath... & layer upon layer... building the flow... letting go I sing mostly in a trance... & let the sensual waves of sound surround me... & sometimes build & end in Cacaphony of sound & noize... that at times can leave me breathless.
