“While electronics can completely dominate the production of sound, creating performances that no human could possibly manage on their own, some musicians are using technology to augment their playing. Consider Norwegian pianist Kjetil Husebø’s ‘Piano Transformed,’ from the eponymous 2017 album. Husebø plays the piano but its sounds are then fed into electronics that heavily process the source material, creating a sort of diaphanous context that is at once part of and completely independent of the more conventional sounds to which we are accustomed.” Misha Lepetic, 3 Quarks Daily
I am proud that the song “Circle” from my album Piano Transformed (2017) has been chosen to be part of the compilation album JAZZCD.no 8th Edition.
