Aspects of Time & Being

“All the time right now is all there ever is, each being-time
is without exception entire time…Entire being, entire world,
exists in the time of each and every now.”
~ Dogen Zenji from ‘Uju’ (Being-Time)

There is no moment but the present moment. Life is a continuous series of present moments. This music is a continuous series of vibrations that only exist when we engage with them in the present moment.

This recording is the culmination of ideas I have developed and expanded over the past few years. The music I create is an ever evolving form. What I play in this moment will be different in the next moment. Immerse yourself and let go of time. ~ MB
