Tesla's Dream

The title was Tesla’s Dream from the very first notes I played and I don’t know why. Well, I know it had to come from a biography I had read on Tesla many years ago but why did it suddenly come surfacing now? So many questions without answers…

The song is totally instrumental and never meant to have a lyric. I tried to convey Tesla’s unbridled passion with the combination of traditional and electronic instruments, which I thought appropriate for the man who was so far ahead of his time. What I lacked was a good drum line and this is where my good friend Lenny Levash of Nevada USA came to the rescue. I think it is some of his most creative work yet and I am truly grateful!
