Recent RELEASE and DEBUT IN JAZZ, SOLO PIANO IMPROV,
- Improv 16 (full album).
Solo piano improvisation performed in private studio on 10-23-2016.
The entire improvisation was approached with the intent to record a possibly special hour of music channeled in the moment. I found it special enough to save and share. I ended up dividing the final CD master into 3 parts with zero pause between tracks to preserve continuity of the performance.
I performed the entire piece nonstop on a Roland RD800 and simultaneously ran a midi signal through Ivory II Pianos hosted in Cubase 8.5 pro. I then mixed a stereo audio file for mastering and made final polishes in Wavelab. I only regret no one was around with a video camera.
Thank you for supporting my music, and I wish you a peaceful and joyous season!
