Maya Le Roux believes that memory is an indispensable element of creativity. A piece of Music is created through the same process as a good recipe: by mixing textures of sound that one has tasted previously. That is why, above all, we strive to be melodic, and that is the goal on Le Roux' new CD: Symphonic and guitar. The beauty of a theme transcends the confines of time and should not be excluded from the musical creations of the 21st century. The purpose of language is to communicate. Maya Le Roux is loath to inventing a new musical idiom because she is afraid that it may not be understood. The recurring theme of her compositions is to transmit pleasure and emotion.
