Transition is a global musical journey. Strong,playful and subtle themes interweave drawing inspiration from Australia to Indonesia, Japan, India, Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Contrasting often uplifting, emotional and visual like cues make the music very listenable as well as very filmic.

A selection of these paintings feature in the USA publication ''Musicians As Artists'', an international collection of visual art by contemporary musicians including Miles Davis, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, David Bowie, Ringo Starr and Carly Simon.
