Thoughts : Solo Piano Video release

Thoughts : Track 2 from my Solo Piano album. https://audionarcissist.bandcamp.com

Released in 2019 – Vision by Tasty Beacon, completed in April 2020.

Reflective

An encouragement, to allow ourselves to grieve all the things that are moving from one state to another

We were something – and now we are something else – and then we will be something else again.

A continual process of ends and beginnings.

A sense of newness can only be glimpsed, if we allow ourselves to feel the sadness at the passing of things

Time, parts of ourselves, ways of existing, the morning, the night, the spiders web

This piece is an invitation to pause and consider all we have lost

Solo Piano Album Released

I recently embarked on a sonic filing exercise in order to rediscover music recordings which were gathering dust in failing hard drives. My aim was to make them available to friends, who have been using recordings in their film projects. I stumbled across a surprising amount of interesting solo piano works and decided to release them as a little album. A number of the pieces were inspired by the philosophy and art of Wassily Kandinsky and Egyptian Baladi music. Buy it on Bandcamp for the price of shouting me a coffee in your favourite cafe.

Améliorer Fragments 1

John Carberry of Tasty Beacon fame commissioned me to do some sound and music work for his short film. Including the snippet in this trailer.

Flawed Single Release

I released this single but didn’t actually tell anyone about it.

one state to another

I recorded this piece as part of an artist in residence at the Vancouver Arts Centre. As the day gradually fades I lull myself into a slower, more relaxed state. Through improvisation, being in flow in imperfect moments of life, we remember that life may be flawed but connecting with the inner structures, rhythms and messyness can uncover a beauty which is impossible to find through a planned, rational grid like structure or process. Being creative, for me, is a process of moving from one state to another. By documenting my own change of emotional state I hope to create a means through which you may experience a similar pathway through watching and listening. This then is not a product to be bought and sold but an experience which can be shared. This piece will be embedded within the physical space it was created by leaving a QR code at the site.
