White Light:
With no wind and no sound
substance in the silence
a rest in fading skies
when light dips to gloaming
a subtle closing in
something whispering in the silence
shadows toward darkness
motionless on a mountain
the lonely fragrance of earth after rain
lay still
stretch out your arms and see

This is a collection of improvisational pieces I recorded alone in a big old church hall in Sydney. It's me late at night, a couple of microphones, a grand piano and the 'record' button pressed in firmly.

Like other musicians I suffer from 'red light fever' so this was my attempt at sidestepping that. For a night!

These compositions came from nowhere. The idea is to share a spontaneous moment of solo piano musings as a gift from me to you…. In the interim between 'Night Sky' and what I officially do next, I offer you this........... Enjoy
