Tell us something about your track Deciding Moment!
This track came about as I was improvising and came up with the opening motif. It just struck me as interesting. So I began developing it into what you hear now. It was very improvisatory and done in one take. The way I try to think about solo piano composition is almost like placing someone in the middle of a movie scene where drama is already taking place. I think of pictures and settings a lot while playing or composing. It’s called “Deciding Moment” because the mood or vibe of the piece felt like a character was at a crossroads and unsure how to proceed. Perhaps even afraid to, at first. But during this piece, they’ve made up their mind. They know what they need to do. I hope you enjoy the piece!
Thank you for this Nathan!
