Composing Connected

The process of composing the pieces always starts with an improvisation. I’ve grown accustomed to letting the recording machine run along whenever I feel like expressing something on the piano. Listening back to the recordings, some I find ‘nice’, and some are somehow special, sometimes being the direct expression of something I feel strongly. These pieces I work out into their final form to be recorded.

Some of them I experienced to be so clear in their original ‘state’ that I decided to record them exactly like that. So I sat down with the recording, wrote every note down, and studied them. I consider them a gift from who knows where, it feels as if they were hanging in the air, and I received them gratefully. Literally written-out originals are: Open Up, Dream, Connected & Awake.
