The composer says about these pieces:
Flow: In positive psychology, a flow state, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity.
Journey to Harmony : The term harmony derives from the Greek ἁρμονία (harmonía), meaning “joint, agreement, concord,” from the verb ἁρμόζω (harmozo), “to fit together, to join.” The term was often used for the whole field of music, while “music” referred to the arts in general. In this piece, Harmony is the process of balance between contrasting worlds: Western and Mediterranean music, consonance and dissonance, chromatic and diatonic material, melody and extended techniques.
