SPARKLE OF INSPIRATION
DIETER STRAUCH, DOUG HAMMOND
Sparkle of Inspiration is devoted to the US musician, composer and poet Professor Douglas Hammond, who lives in Linz. Together with the protagonist we follow the traces of the question of where inspiration can be found for creative work. Doug Hammond grants us glimpses of his thoughts. He muses about life, music, poetry. His musical spectrum is wide-ranging – from jazz all the way to serious music. Hammond offers insights into his artistic explorations – thus leading us back to the beginning: back to the initial question, back to the perpetual search for inspiration.
