"Piano & Woodwind Improv"

I got busy and have been neglecting to promote my last Bandcamp release, from back in May. Here is the final track on the LP:

That's me playing piano, with some segments translated to woodwind (recorder) via the magic of MIDI.
Playing skill, for me, is less interesting than the ear and editing. Tunesmithing is a matter of hearing melodies in clusters of played notes and then wrestling them into rhythmic and tonal coherence on the page (jiggering around the notation). Then it's a matter of arranging the revised clusters into a song-narrative.
The keyboard is a Native Instruments' Komplete Kontrol S49, and the piano is mainly "Berlin Concert Grand."
