Layered multiple piano improvisation by JUNO Award-winning composer Jordan Nobles.
It was Wednesday evening. I had rented a beautiful Steinway and a quiet hall to record some melodic fragments for a composition I was working on. But I got distracted by the gorgeous sound of the Steinway while warming up and ended up playing all evening, just for fun. It was an exploration of pure expression, and, to be honest, procrastination. I gave in to my impulse to play and create spontaneously.
In the recording 'fingerpainting' there are multiple layered pianos. Often two, and sometimes three or four pianos playing at once. I created a few minutes of one layer, and then listened to it while playing another layer, and again, and on and on all evening.
Never did get to the work I was supposed to be doing.
