Find out more about The Piano Storybook here: www.pianostorybook.com

This collection of songs is the first in a series of 13, all recorded during the months of March and April of 2017.

I collected images and stories from 106 people. For each one I recorded in studio a piano improvisation directly in response to the imagery and story. Often I was also responding to specific musical direction from the person submitting the image as far as mood or texture. A few people also had very specific requests as to the musical nature of the song.

This whole project pushed my improvisation skills to the very limit and was a wonderful challenge. I learned a lot and am extremely proud of all the work and can't wait to begin sharing it publicly.

This set in particular tells the story of a great flood that swept across a piece of land, changing forever the way life was structured there. It starts with the storm approaching and then tells the story of how life adapted and found a way to blossom into a new form, adjusting to the environment.
