He goes after that vision by sharing his passion for the environment, as he feels that nature is free from the human condition that afflicts humanity, and is an inspiration that can help everyone. The musician feels that if people observe nature, they can learn more about their own true deposition. His overall music serves as a vehicle to help people make sense of themselves and the world.
