about

One day i decided to just go up to the piano and just play. With these improvisations I wanted to create music simply and instinctively - not try and be too clever, not demonstate any virtuosity. Just follow where my musical heart took me.

I recorded one piece a day - giving time between so I'd arrive at the piano fresh.

In the run up to recording this I lstened to a lot of music by the piano players that first inspired me on the piano - see list below.

Some thought was required of course, not to duplicate ideas and to have some variety, but by and large I found success in recording these pieces was when I was "in the zone" of unconcious thought. Just the odd steer here and there but mostly follow my heart and instinct.

influences - Steve Kuhn, Terry Riley, Richie Beirach, Rainer Bruninghaus, John Taylor, Bobo Stenson, ECM, Mike Nock, Alexander Scriabin, Keith Jarrett
