Pictures of a Lake
Pictures of a Lake is a series of musical reflections on a theme of a tranquil lake in the woods. At the heart of it is an underlying sense of tranquility and peace. As someone who has spent a lot of time living near the water, I wanted to portray the emotional landscapes that I always feel in the presence of such a large elemental presence. The water holds hidden mysteries and a profound natural beauty that affects everything around it. To me, a lake in a wood holds a curious combination of timelessness and stately, fluid change. With Pictures of a Lake, I hope to have shown a glimpse of these things. Mark Thorne lives with his family in the Chicago area.
