O'Neill's music acts as an agent and a catalyst for the rich tradition of creative music in America. His musical ideas are drawn not only from his own experiences, but also from the context of that tradition. Often inspired by nature, O'Neill's music is at the same time turbulent and contemplative, containing all the complexities of human experience. In creating and performing his music from this perspective, O'Neill aims to provide audiences with a unique experience which is at the same time communal and personal.
