Today I’m introducing you to the composer and piano player Charley van Veldhoven from Eindhoven in the Netherlands, but is now located in London. Charley has played the piano for as long as she can remember, but started composing for real at the age of eight.
The track Vortex was released as a single on the 10th of April 2020.
Tell us something about your track Vortex!
The track ‘Vortex’ is my second track of the album and is (like the other titels of my album) inspired by the name of Jazz Club ‘Vortex’ in Dalston. When I got to that club on a Tuesday Jazz Jamsession it was super crowded and I remember not wanting to play there because I got stage fright (I never do! but this time I did). For ‘Vortex’ I created multiple improvisations that I would later pick together and puzzle to a full composition. I actually never wrote it down but recorded and memorized it.
Thank you very much for sharing this with us!
