I guess I’m just a little edgy about sharing this, but here goes. I did 2 sessions at SFUAD with Willa Snow to record some solo piano work over the last couple weeks. In this process, I’d just start with a 2-to-16 bar snippet of melody, or a couple chords, or just a rhythmic idea of some sort, and then sort of see where it goes for a while. Some ideas are from 20+ years ago, some of them just a few weeks. Then I take the little snippet out for a walk and try to return it safely home at some point. It’s easy to overthink, but my lack of complete comfort sharing this feels like a good sign rather than a bad one. (I’d be more worried if I didn’t have some doubts about it.) Right now I’m trying to hear it on every system I can get my hands on (so far very happy) and putting it on Soundcloud was one easy way to facilitate this. This is a public sneak preview as I figure out the next steps…
