"As a musician, I feel it is a privilege being able to express life through sound and rhythm, but that becomes a challenge not without difficulties. I love looking for something in our inner space, set it up in communicable terms, and share it with other musicians and audience. It's almost like a religion. But it requires a lot of work through many years in order to learn and develop a creative process—imitation, assimilation, innovation—and a life compromise to be able to grow constantly. I think that playing, improvising, arranging, and composing are just parts of that creative process."
