about

This marks my third release of the year, and it's my favourite album to date. I have had a lot of fun playing around with new piano and string sounds, whilst also collaborating with some fantastic musicians.

I have a basic Clavinova set up, which runs directly through a MIDI cable and recorded live into fruity loops. The piano is improvised in every track, with the string and other instrumental layers added later. I use Fruity Loops to master my tracks, Kontakt 5 for strings and guitar, and Pianoteq 4 Stage for the piano.

I really hope you like this album, I've worked hard on it, and each track means something to me. Please help my music get heard by sharing the album around!

Thanks,
Dave

P.S: Maren is awesome

about

Dave Greening Bristol, UK

I have been playing the piano since I was 6 years old, and in the past couple of years, I turned to making my own sounds. The large majority of my piano compositions are improvisations, where I literally just sit down at the piano and record whatever comes to mind. I think this allows for some more passion to flow through the music... I really hope you enjoy what you hear here! ... more
