Janet Dunbar, Composer

INTUITION AND BEAUTY OF SOUND ARE THE KEY ELEMENTS IN MY MUSIC. Much music of the recent past has emphasized the masculine values of technical prowess, complexity of conception and virtuosity, sometimes even at the expense of appealing sonorities and clarity of communication. THE FEMININE VALUES OF COMPASSION, EMPATHY AND COMMUNION ARE EMPHASIZED IN MY MUSIC in the hope that they will influence the world to achieve a more DYNAMIC BALANCE BETWEEN FEMININE AND MASCULINE VALUES. Through my music I am trying to rebalance masculine and feminine energies, both in myself and in my environment and to help others to do the same.
