I've been writing songs and improvising on the piano (and synthesizers) since I was fairly young. I composed the first piece that I can still remember before I started taking piano lessons (which was when I was nine). I have one tape of piano improvisations that is available for purchase. Go here to learn more about it.
My current project is
a series of improvisations which
I've arranged primarily for
synthesizers. These improvisations originated over the
last three years -- years which have been filled with
change for me.
Find out what gear I use to make these sounds.
Here are some MP3 samples from this upcoming CD (so, of course, you must have an MP3 player in order to hear them):
These are my first projects using digital audio.
Music is a tremendous creative passion and cathartic outlet. When I improvise I have the possibility of the greatest contact with my own inner truth and am able to express things that are deeper in my psyche than my conscious mind can fathom.
On the days that I find time to improvise on a keyboard or pluck a few notes on a guitar, my whole self has an outlet. I "feel better". If I go for more than a day or two without playing an instrument, my mood often sours. This personal truth has really been in my face for the past few months since I've been suffering from a Repetitive Strain Injury.
