A Thing A Week - 2016 - Week 2 | Aftermath

Last week I spent a lot of time refining "Soundscape No. 1 for Solo Piano" by improvising in a certain style and key. A number of ideas and themes that I had started with didn't make it into that final work, but have stuck with me never the less. This short refined improvisation represents the aftermath of boiling down a different piece of music into a concise idea.

I should also mention that I've been listening a lot of Bowie this past week (along with the rest of the world). Apparently a certain amount of Neuk├Âlln from Heroes has made its way into my brain and fingers for this piece (I only noticed it after listening back...strange how inspiration works).

Already working on "Thing Number Three" for next week. Time for some guitars :)

Until then,
