After the first two legs of the ‘Story of Light’ tour, Steve took five months off to compose ‘The Still Small Voice’ for a prominent orchestra. Hear Steve talk more about this exciting orchestral music in today’s video reveal through this special newsletter: http://go2w.in/vai
On the creation of ‘The Still Small Voice, Steve says, “I worked in shifts of approximately 20 hours and then would sleep for 6-8 hours, then wake and continue the cycle. Days seemed longer with this method and my attention can go unbroken for longer periods. Working this way is not a constant way of life for me but is good for particular projects. I also worked into this schedule a balance of physical exercise, meditation and family time.”
