Today I’m introducing you to the French composer and piano player Pierre-Alexandre Monin and his track With you. Pierre-Alexandre started playing the piano at the age of eight, and the piano is his best way to express the music in his mind.
I use it to compose, and also to simply express in the moment what is trailing deep inside me. I love spending time on my piano, improvising, just to express what is happening in the present moment.
The track With you was released on the EP with the same name on march 8th, 2021.
Tell us something about the track With you!
I composed it while thinking of those pleasant moments which are imbued with melancholy. I wanted a very simple melody that was delicate and sweet. And emotionally ambiguous. I found it in this major key. For a long time I played it in C. The piece was brighter. And when the time came for the recording, I said to myself: I would like it deeper. At the last moment I changed the key and finally recorded it in G.
Thank you very much for this!
