ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Following the success of my CD 43 short piano improvisations (also available from CD Baby) and in response to many requests for longer piano pieces, I decided to create an album of extended improvisations, each an accompaniment to an imagined ceremony. What I discovered during the six months it took to make this album, was that whenever I tried to make a conscious decision about how the music should sound, the composition failed. Only by staying entirely focused on the ceremony I was watching in my mind's eye, and only by staying rhythmically true to that ceremony, was I able to create successful spontaneous compositions; and these pieces do sound composed, though they are entirely improvised.
