the idea behind this EP was a pretty simple one .. arriving at a friend's house a couple of days ago, having not played piano properly for 3 months*, i thought it might be interesting to record the reunion between myself and her piano - and to see, or rather hear, how the interaction would pan out. anyway, that's what i did - set up my mic, pressed record and then started to play, unsure of what would emerge.
when listening back to the results i found there were striking parallels with reunions in the human realm- hence the track titles.
" it's been so long and soon i'll have to leave again. someday though we'll be together. i promise "
"Together" is a collection of 4 improvised/semi-improvised tracks recorded over the course of an hour on a white upright Furstein in a friend's living room in South London. for "i promise" i completely removed the upper casing of the piano leaving the hammers and strings exposed.
("for snow" was recorded in London in early December 2011 in anticipation of snowfall, then i moved back up to east anglia for a few months - occasionally/rarely finding a piano to play for a few minutes here and there)
