Hylton Mowday

Composer/Musician

Music is my expression of who I am, who I wish to be and how I feel.

It is my most comfortable and sincere language of communication.

Just like an ever-changing mood and personality, I embrace the fluidity of musical genres; Rock n Roll, Jazz, Funk, Baroque and everything in-between.

It is through continual education and hard work to comprehend the building blocks of music that I find the source of the liberation of creativity.

Every note can be as beautiful as it can be ugly, knowing in which order to place them makes all the difference.

I do not believe personal subjectivity makes strong enough a defence for the like or dislike of music.

Knowledge, education and being open to question one’s own certainty forges a path to musical insight and development. This is true for composer, performer and audience.
