心頭滅却 (shintō me'kyaku) a Japanese idiom meaning to clear one's mind of all mundane thoughts, this is the first in a collection of four pieces called Mediation. In meditation, we aim to rid our minds of the muddled, confused, mundane thoughts they are filled with from everyday life. As a composer, I have often found a link between the act of writing music and the clearing of one's mind; there have been many occasions where my music has helped heal me or bring me great joy.

Shin should be played at the slow end of largo, and with care taken to emphasise the subtle differences in rhythm between the straight quavers and semi-quavers, and the triplets. The accents during the quiet sections need not be jarring, although the difference between pianissimo and fortissimo should be marked. Above all things, the piece should remain meditative and effortless, the repeated F sharps never distracting the listener, only grounding them.
