“The real art occurs in the imagination. Then the work begins. The tools are whatever we can get, beads or pixels, hunting bows or an orchestra.” (Buffy Sainte-Marie)

The arrangements I composed for Veda Hille and the CBC Radio Orchestra are homage to this spirit, homage to a great artist never given enough credit, whose art and activism will be always inspiring. (Giorgio Magnanensi)
