ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Steven`s solo piano work reminds you to the work of Arvo Pärt and Wim Mertens..." (number one Belgian classical radio station Klara)

“Imagine silence itself were a musician, would it play the piano like Steven does? Well indeed, maybe it would . . ." (Alexander Wolfram, Belgian author)

I never followed an official musical education—as a child I tried; but after two years, I was kind of traumatized by the linear and old-fashioned way of teaching and never
thought I'd be able to play any instrument or sing.
 


From 2002 to 2006, I discovered playing the piano; and, in 2007, I started to take my autodidactic practice more seriously. Since then, I have practiced, performed, sung and played a lot, and attended several intensive workshops, all to discover new ways to express my personal sound.


All the music performed during my piano concerts is self-composed and improvised in the moment. Every concert is different, although you'll recognize several melodies and musical passages as it is with improvisational jazz music.

You'll also find several of the melodies and songs I worked with on the album Into resonance. Though it's not at all my intention to imitate other musicians, I'll tell you this just to give you an idea: people often tell me that my piano music reminds them, at times, of music from musicians like Ludovico Einaudi, Eric Satie, Keith Jarret (improvisations), Craig Armstrong (piano works) or Michael Nyman (the piano). 


And, since I also sing a lot and use several other instruments besides the piano, people tell me that my concerts take them along on a trip through several world cultures.

What I'm often told is that people hear a lot of oriental, Arabic, Buddhist, Indian and native influences in my music. It's not my intention to consciously create these sounds; it just happens naturally. I'm just enjoying the moment and sharing music from my heart.

On my site you can find free music downloads as well. This documentary was made by great people of the Belgian television station RTV.

Beautiful!
This is a beautiful album. There is a pureness and innocence to it all and I've found it helpful in getting me to a deeper meditative state. Steven's ability to play and vocalize with such intuition is conveyed to the listener as a powerful spiritual and emotional experience. Bravo Steven! Thank you for sharing your gifts and I look forward to hearing more in time.
