In my poetry, and in a different way in my piano music, the more personal aspect of my being finds its most direct expression. Yet to speak of personal expression is only a superficial way of considering these manifestations of a creative and, especially, a transformative impulse which has pervaded my whole being, and which required crucial events to be released and embodied in concrete images, words and tones. The most significant of these manifestations should be considered transpersonal rather than personal; for the personal events and crises were but lenses to bring to a focus the release of feelings, thoughts and spiritual realizations which were in fact necessary in the accomplishment of my destiny.
- from "Concerning My Poetry
and Its Place in My Creative Activity"

After finding doors to the musical world closed to him after the rise of Neo-Classicism, Dane Rudhyar (1895-1985) looked toward philosophy, metaphysics, astrology and literature as creative outlets.
     In 1929, following the death of a close friend, Aryel Darma, Rudhyar wrote the avant-garde epic narrative RANIA. Though not directly biographic, the narrative incorporates the character of some of the people and situations he encountered in the film world and in theosophical circles. During the 1950s, in When Cosmic Love Awakens and Return from No-Return, Rudhyar used the science-fiction medium to dramatize metaphysical and transphysical concepts.
