Having played Einaudi’s Night in concert and enjoyed the effect, I decided to see if I could write something in that style. He dislikes categorizing his music, but it is minimalist, cinematic, introspective mood music. The solo piano is played over a finely produced, lush accompaniment track.

For five months I explored many new digital sounds and techniques and blended them with traditional orchestral instruments and textures creating a set of twelve unique tone poems that can be played live with the recorded accompaniments. The entire cycle is just over an hour long.
