Today I rediscovered some improvisations I did last year while living in Germany. I remember that initially I totally hated them and ignored the files for over a year. Just by chance I came across this folder. After listening to all this raw material (while I should have been focusing on my master thesis) I realized that some of the recordings weren't that bad. So why not making another set then?
This is basically a continuation of the Memoirs of an Office Worker album. These were actually recorded only a few weeks after that one. Most of the recordings from these sessions are really crap, so I'll never touch them again ;) But these few one-time-improv attempts stood out, they have this relatively dark and intense atmosphere and I can tell that I was, at least most of the time, well focused while improvising. I was quite surprised when I listened to them today! The question was how to contextualise ... So in the end I went with a relatively dark theme of compliance/conformity in the context of a work environment ;)
So I hope this will be the last piano centric thing published for now. I really need to get away from the piano ... Don't get me wrong, It's a gorgeous instrument! It has been a wild, sometimes problematic, relationship in the past 17 years. Well, time to expand the vocabulary! Then, after various discoveries, the piano will certainly give way for more interesting stuff :)
Hope you like it!
