Sven B. Schreiber This album represents yet another side of Cody Carpenter, which I wasn't aware of so far. Yes, he writes great prog songs with remarkably catchy vocal melodies. Yes, he writes awesome synth music. So he can play stunning improvisations on the piano, too! The way he improvises is a bit like Frank Zappa played his guitar solos live: It sounds very structured, pretty much like a composition. Obviously, he's got a clear vision in his head beforehand, which he can spool out directly to his fingers. Favorite track: Strength.

about

This is a collection of improvised piano pieces built thematically around 11 selected Major Arcana of the Tarot.

My process involved playing to a feeling until I thought the focus was lost. I would then stop, edit, and continue playing until the idea ran it's course, after which I would continue to edit until the piece felt complete.
