Composing a Life

New York-based composer, Jerome Kitzke, embodies independence and freedom of spirit in his music as in his life. In fact, his music reflects all facets of his life and what’s important to him – the beautiful, the challenging and the painful. His musical voice is free and inspired and his breath-taking hand-written scores have featured in exhibitions, inspiring through their visual as well as musical impact.

So many of us don’t even know what that hackneyed phrase, ‘be true to yourself’, means. If you have a listen to Jerome’s interview you might just get a sense of it, as well as a sense of some of the gifted and sensitive people who encouraged his originality along the way.

When Dr. Petrina Barson was a medical student, she found that compassion was not emphasised in her training and, at worst, considered dangerous to a doctor’s ability to be objective. She knew that, as a doctor, she didn’t want to lose her compassion to fit the prevailing attitudes, and went on to make a study of compassion, teaching compassion cultivation to both medical students and the broader community.
