Generally Descending

I’ve been playing piano more seriously for the last couple of years, making an effort to learn music theory, practice scales, etc. This is a collection of short semi-improvised pieces that I recorded over the last few months. Fairly slow, minimal and jazz inspired – although, I should qualify that the music is informed less by any thorough understanding of jazz than by an interest in extended chord harmony grafted on to my ingrained pop sensibility. I had been producing fully instrumented songs, but have found myself absorbed more recently with the simplicity of a single instrument. It’s been a pleasure to slough off lyrics, drum loops, bass lines and the endless complexity of multi-track production. I’m not much of a technical piano player, but enjoy developing these little compositions. They have have an emotional resonance for me. Hope you like them.
