a collection of improvised minimal piano compositions, recorded in an old church & created with the help of peter broderick.

perhaps the most stunning aspect of what on the surface appears to be an entirely pre-planned & composed body of work comes with the discovery that these pieces were in fact improvised. these 2 friends share a common affinity in that they both possess an absolute mastery of melody, composition & performance – able to deliver with devastating effect. the modest mr.broderick states “i remember thinking to myself as i lay there stunned, that i could spend 10 years trying to write an amazing piece of piano music & still it would never be half as good as these improvisations!”. highly recommended.
