about

Stationary Travels writes: "The partnership of visual artist Anna Salzmann and composer/musician Garreth Brooke (aka Garreth Broke) has always been a special one both personally and creatively. Their latest work together is entitled Healing and combines 11 abstract artworks by Anna with 25 minutes of piano music by Garreth which seeks to explore this complex and sometimes contradictory emotional process from several perspectives.

“Healing explores the complex, not always linear process of healing. Any struggle is full of contradictions: there are moments of pain and relief, tension and release, opacity and clarity. Part of what made Anna and I fall in love with each other was a shared need to create, whether that was art or music, and a recognition that we were both creating in order to heal. Like all couples, we have old wounds, whether they be physical or mental. We’ve found that the act of creation/healing is far more powerful when working together because it forces us to listen more carefully, to act more wisely, to strive to find workable compromises.” – Garreth.

In art as in life, Anna and Garreth prove to be ideal complements for one another. As the album unfolds, so does an arc of grief and recovery which peaks with the poignant title track and the joyous release of “Cave-Mind-Clear” which concludes the album. Without words, Garreth & Anna speak volumes with eloquence, kindness, and deep understanding." (stationarytravels.wordpress.com/2019/10/11/through-a-musical-lens-healing-by-garreth-broke-and-anna-salzman/)

Doug Thomas writes "Writing music as a way to escape and heal has been central in Broke’s—and Salzmann’s—career, and it is the central theme of this release. Yes, the music on its own is truly enjoyable and well-written, and performed, but the project really makes fully sense when perceived as a visual and audio diptych. Salzmann’s paintings complete the music just as much as Broke illustrates the art. There are many different contrasting aspects, whether they are musical or philosophical, and this is what makes Healing such a strong collaboration and release." - www.dougthomas.co.uk/healing
