Fiona's Comments

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
