about

The piano. Actually all sorts of pianos. Acoustic grands, out-of-tune uprights, electrics, treated, echoed.. the piano is part of our DNA. With this album I attempted to create some interesting environments for this most wonderful musical instrument. Unique spaces in which I improvised simple, little melodies and free-form bits.

It really all started with the Great East Japan Earthquake. The day after the tsunami I felt a sadness that I could only convey with a very few notes on the piano, and which resulted in "Looking For Japan". The little sketch sat on the shelf waiting for a project just like this. I knew this would be the last track for something, someday.

I don't really have much else to say. I was inspired by everyone, and just felt very relaxed and simple about the entire project. I guess its "ambient" music when you boil it down. So... relax. And if you're all anxious about something, maybe this will help quiet you down a bit.
