Elliott talks about "HeartStrings" :
"HeartStrings is like a little art gallery, maybe in NYC's SoHo district. The seventeen pieces of music are paintings, drawings, sketches, hanging on the audio wall. They each have colors, rhythms and textures unique unto themselves, and yet they've got that thread running through them that is a big piece of who I envisage myself to be."
"It all began on a chilly January afternoon. Having just completed a recording in my studio of "Dee Dee's Song", a two part acoustic invention, and feeling really proud of the result, I asked Jane to pop in and offer an opinion. Unlike Jiminy Cricket, rather than whispering from the perch of my shoulder, she looked me square in the eye, and said: "You've been talking about doing a solo album for a lot of years now. Don't you think that this is the perfect beginning to that project?"
