Like a rush of blood to the head, flooding tributaries of vessels. With a harkening motif that recalls a distant ghost.

About the Album

Composition And Reactions is created by a unique composition, Composition N.26, totally written and without improvisation, composed by special features: it’d be intentionally irregular, having different themes or harmonies each one far apart the others and without an unique rhythms, too. Starting from Composition N.26 I have selected eight fragments developed with different improvised approaches, so Reactions are born. Each Reaction has a specific direction, for example intervals or the comparison between density/spaces, or is characterized by use of electronics as “sampling” (to sample a part of an improvisation and then to improvise again assigning it a new form) or “tuning” (to improvise the tuning of piano through electronic). This is the attempt to play a classic form like piano solo by a direction as personal as unusual.
