Since writing the first of his books, it has always been the author’s main objective to try and encourage others to help the creatures and people of our planet― this music album continuing in that quest. The first hand-written score appeared at a time when the author was suffering a particularly traumatic period in his life. Seeking a little respite in music, he became intrigued by his sister’s music compositions and set about creating some of his own. Towards the end of the nineteen nineties he had completed six tone poems, going on to finish three more by the end of that decade. The impression he became aware of then, was to dedicate each one to a pet that had graced his life since childhood. Moving into the new millennia, he shelved the music project to complete the Cyannian Trilogy; the first book of which was published in July two thousand and six. The trilogy finished he began his autobiography, with the notion of dedicating a chapter describing the creation and purpose for writing the music album. However, with the inspiration for a new series of books pressing him, the intention to attach his music to his autobiography proved unrealistic. In retrospect, and encouraged by other views, the music project stands on its own. Finally finished in the autumn of two thousand and eleven, the proofing of the album was completed for publication in the spring of two thousand and twelve.
