Christopher Stewart loves to try his hand at various artistic endeavours, but if there's one discipline he's perfecting, it must be the art of blooming late.

He has studied for a long time, played football even longer, spent a significant part of his life developing software, and invested most of the remaining hours in the pursuit of his ideal of creating meaningful music in the context of a rock ensemble.

He has founded the prolific yet still album-less progressive rock outfit Poligraf in 1998 and has never been quite the same since.

He has been practising Buddhism dead-seriously since the mid-nineties, until he finally awakened to the fact that it teaches living happiness.

1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:36PM

The Threshold Bookcast (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
18 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: Each episode of the Threshold Bookcast consists in a complete chapter of The Threshold Series made available for free online reading. The Threshold relates the saga of the Ovelian civilization, a society very similar to our own, as it heads towards one of the most dramatic chain of events of its history. The first book, « 2206 : Window Onto A New World, » focuses on the end of the year 2206, which culminates on an important federal election that will be impacted by the discovery of an anomaly in the nearby outer space. This is an experiment for me. Let's see where this leads to. For more details about the Bookcast : http://bit.ly/threshold-bookcast-intro

Poetics of Music in the Form of Six Lessons by Igor Stravinsky
“I have no use for a theoretic freedom. Let me have something finite, definite — matter that can lend itself to my operation only insofar as it is commensurate with my possibilities. And such matter presents itself to me together with limitations. I must in turn impose mine upon it. So here we are, whether we like it or not, in the realm of necessity. And yet which of us has ever heard talk of art as other than a realm of freedom? This sort of heresy is uniformly widespread because it is imagined that art is outside the bounds of ordinary activity. Well, in art as in everything else, one can build only upon a resisting foundation: whatever constantly gives way to pressure, constantly renders movement impossible.
My freedom thus consists in my moving about within the narrow frame that I have assigned myself for each one of my undertakings.
I shall go even further: my freedom will be so much the greater and more meaningful the more narrowly I limit my field of action and the more I
