These solo piano pieces are inspired by my desire to create complete compositions as spontaneously and freely as possible through new music and jazz improvisation using my intuition to guide and structure the gestures, themes, tonalities, rhythms and moods that come to me. I like to follow my sources and see where they lead me through images of nature’s elements and life forms moving through abstract landscapes of light and shade and texture. Ensorcell expresses how I am captivated and respond to these ideas through my impromptu creations which I hope you enjoy.
