“A Composer of Art Music and the Dark Age of Music” by Greg Henry Waters

Mark Twain, said, "to do something that no one else did is the real joy of life." This is what I am trying to do.

We have to create a real culture not let the McDonald culture take over. I like gentleness in music.

We need gentleness in the world not force. God is gentle. If music be the voice of God it should be gentle.

This book is dedicated to al the people whom have participated in my life!

Special Thanks to Steve Devitt and Kirsten Borg for thinking the book is important!

Also to my two most important teachers, Bianca Rogge and Alfred Schmielewski! (Yogi Narayana)

Write a review of my own book. Let see what I come with? Well, this book started in Canada in 1975 when I was coming to terms with my life as an artist in Canada and dealing with the local musicians. For I had no idea what the music business was like, the purpose of music and its function in society. To this day I do not understand this still. Except people produce music for their own glory and not the glory of music. They want to make a lot of money, become popular, have people look up to them as stars and show their ego to the world. It took me many years to realize that music was a materialistic as a car is or a house, or a phone, or any other product that people produce for life. For me music was the spirit of life, or the cloud in Yoga, or the saints in religion etc. This stills put me at odds with the world besides my many interest in life besides just music: culture, history, composition history of music, harmonic, religion and my place in it which I have learned I do not have a place, war and my place in it, credentials from universities and schools, which can best be viewed at my web site. My interest in Philosophy and what is Philosophy I had so many unanswered Questions. Greg Henry Waters
