Music and Artistic Creativity

Claudio grew up in a musical environment, early in life became a musician, learning piano (winning the Debussy prize in Santiago Chile in 1961) and then musical composition (his piano Sonatina also received a local prize.) This early musicianship prepared him for his contributions later in life concerning to the use of music as meditation and contemplation, as also for his reflections on the construction of musical meaning.

Included here are videoed talks... also papers that, though inspired by music, address spiritual issues such as inspiration, creativity and spiritual experience.
