Prison Break

Piano improvisation is one of the easiest ways (I have found) to forget about time. Hopefully they have a similar effect for you listeners. House of Watts is releasing two of these improvisations from a session called Prison Break.

Working with a drone was (at the time of this recording) a break from musical norms for me. Modality now relies on this, combing different intervals with a series of different drones to emote/evoke. The strand in ‘ol duder’s head at the time was staging a break-out from the imprisoning nature of rapid or repeated, cyclical chord changes…aka blues and rock. Anti-Frantic, you know?.
