Q: HI: I am a collector of Antarctic-themed music and am wondering, what was the reason/background for the Winds of Antarctica track? Sincerely, Valmar Kurol (Montreal, Canada)

A: Normally when I write music, I'll come up with different song parts and get them arranged and completed before I try to figure out what the song is about and give it a title. Winds of Antarctica was a little different, but only because I came up with the title half way through the music writing process. So I did actually have an image in my head when I wrote the second half of the song (the section after 2:12). But I haven't been to Antarctica, so really the song is based on fantasy rather than reality. To me, the song sounds cold, with various levels of intensity...like the wind. That's pretty much where the title comes from. Anyway, thanks for listening, hope you enjoy the CD! -Mark
