I found myself in a recording studio in Brooklyn, having rented out the room to lay down some grand piano tracks for a client, but finished the job quickly enough so that I had an extra hour of studio time
"Simon?...What are you doing right now?...Wanna come take some video of me improvising on piano?"
The thought to film some (ideally) compositional improvising came very last-minute to me, but compared to my previous videos (which all involved a decent amount of arranging, production and organizing), I really enjoyed the simplicity and ease of this shoot. And truth be told, I just love to play on a good piano
