I came to Cadaqués because of an invitation to a three day summer party that turned into a month. Situated in the north east of Spain - Catalunya, it is the mediterranean and is where the sun meets the shore with olive trees and a love for life in-between. And I very quickly fell in love - not only with the beautiful town and lots of its people but with being somewhere fresh new and dramatic. Several of my friends suggested that I play a concert in the Eglise - the beautiful Eglise (church) that dominates the landscape of the village and around which I was beginning to sketch the plot of an opera to do with the idea of the curious sound of the bells changing.
The rest of the story is what you hear in the concert itself - the whole thing is improvised or rather - composed in real-time, and tells the story of my experience in that lovely town.
'This is the kind of piano I totally relate to: exploratory, thoughtful, soulful, focused. Those qualities are all sort of contradictory, or at least contrasting, which is why this kind of piano work is meaningful: because it is multi-dimensional.' - Thomas Conrad critic for Jazz Times
