Plans for 2020

I'm one of the lucky ones as far as COVID-19 is concerned, as it doesn't stop me composing as I usually do. So in light of that, I thought I might share what projects I'm working on, which I'm likely to be able to finish now that I have even more time.

My Spring album, which will be called "ARBORETUM", will probably be first, as well as its piano-only version. Alongside that, I've got in the works:

  1. a Summer album of course, which is currently under the name "SUN DANCES"

  2. - an album inspired by mental illness and depression entitled "FALLING MOON SYNDROME" (which was actually composed several years ago but never made it to a proper high-level record)

  3. - an album about infatuation and lovesickness, which will be named "HOLOGRAM" or something similar

  4. - an untitled "oceans" album

  5. - an untitled "night" album

  6. - a modern, half-improv'd theme and variations for the piano

  7. - a remixed version of "BIGELOW STREET", my 2016 album about my time as an international student

  8. - a general collection of other little ideas that I can't do without

  9. -piano solo renditions of all of the above

So LOTS of new material is slowly on its way! Obviously all I can say is that I hope it all provides a bit of solace and interest once it's all out there, especially under today's circumstances!

All the best to everyone struggling worse than me.

Deciding on Instruments

This next album has given me an interesting problem to solve. I'm not currently in a situation to afford real players, nor do I have the time to create scores for them even if I could. But what I do h
