Today I’m introducing you to the track Reactions by the composer and piano player Nick Vereshchak, based in Toronto, Canada. Nick has played the piano since the age of eight and was mainly interested in learning by ear. Nick started composing about six years ago and started to take his composing more seriously three years ago.
The track Reactions was released as a single on the 23rd of September, 2020, and will also be part of an upcoming EP.
Tell us something about your track Reactions!
I wrote Reactions in one sitting – it was a very impulsive piece. I found myself thinking about the concept of reactions a lot; they’re often almost impossible to control, and they can span a wide range of emotions. As someone who experiences anxiety quite often, I realized I was reacting in unhelpful ways to a lot of things that were happening in my life, and sometimes that was detrimental to the people close to me. I wrote this piece as a way to sort of sit with those feelings, and focus on getting out of the initial reaction phase of whatever I was dealing with at the time.
Thanks for sending this track in, Nick!
