about

All natural functions create balance.
Your gut senses what's good for you.

In the right proportion silence brings introspection, and sadness is replaced by joy.

With every inhale, our cells and mind are rejuvenated with oxygen.
As our breath takes its time to breeze gently through, our body and mind are cleared.

So, take your time, as instinctively spontaneously the body and the entire universe balance themselves from the inside.

Slow down, indulge in these deep tones, connect organically through this emotional piano music with your inner peace,
Meditate to align NOW mindfully your sense of life.
Become the creator of your very personal story in each song.
Technology is faster than us, while our body and the brain need to rest. Therefore, dive deeply into the feelings that escape from Tom’s music.

Savour this balancing art with all your senses!

"Chacun le sait, chacun le sent : aujourd’hui, ralentir est un luxe, mais un luxe nécessaire. Pour l’artiste, l’indispensable dépouillement, la mise à nu, condition sine qua non de la création véritable, qui n’est toujours que re-création, renaissance à soi-même et aux autres, exige des efforts inédits. À l’heure des échanges électroniques instantanés mondialisés, l’artisanat d’art du musicien requiert une rupture ascétique et un engagement total : se placer dans la lignée des facteurs d’un piano qui a un siècle de carrière, refuser toute fioriture, toute correction postérieure, tout accompagnement, toute thématique prédéfinie, voilà le défi et le pari. Il redevient alors possible de «jouer» d’un instrument et, tout naturellement, joueur et auditeur, retrouvent ensemble l’inspiration, divaguent sans errer, voyagent sans bouger, maîtrisent le temps. Ralentir donc, se hâter avec lenteur mais résolument vers d’autres lents demains."
-Florent Loiseau
