The Music of David Salminen

“Science has widened man’s horizons far beyond his earthly existence, and yet scientists do not notice that they have made possible a new way of thinking about the world, that would take account of the changes of scale that have put geocentric philosophies, once and for all, out of serious consideration.”  J.G. Bennett, p. 187 of his 1973 book “Gurdjieff – Making a New World”

J.G. Bennett – who I met in 1971 and subsequently studied music with, at his International Academy for Continuous Education at Sherborne near Cheltenham, England – was a major influence on the development of my thinking. An interest in not only modern concepts, but also modern feelings – for the Cosmos we are all a part of – has been a major inspiration for my music.
