About this album
The Love Symphony is an album that is symphonic in scale and ambition, The Love Symphony uses the theme of love to tell an instrumental musical tale, a journey of loneliness into love.

I'm always conscious of unity and holding an entire idea together. Here I've tried to unify the music with perhaps the simplest idée fixe possible, three fixed tones, as the listener is taken on a melodic journey. The work is divided into three broad sections, each with three tracks.

In 2015 I created an accompanying film for this entire album using stock footage and visual effects to try to create a visual analogue of the music. The Love Symphony: A Fantasy of Darkness and Light, was premièred in London as part of my art exhibition The Phenomenology of Love.
