Between the Limbs, Music

"Between the Limbs, Music" is a set of four songs that deal with themes of love, life and death. "The Book of Hungers" establishes the idea that we are all connected by our mortality and desire for love. "Hummingbird" moves into the wonderful realm of young love—pure, fantastic passion. "Autumn Dusk" is about mature love – a love that has endured. "Between the Limbs, Music" reflects on the paradox of life – there cannot be joy without sorrow, passion without solitude or life and love without death to drive us forward, make us yearn. It ends with a soaring “ah” – an expression of joy and passion.
