PlayList

ALEATORIC is simultaneously composed, played & highly technical recorded.

Tommies piano improvising skills were developed during the 18 years of accompanying professional modern dancers.
To create and perform spontaneously we call that - Instant Composing - There was this challenge to do the same thing “without” dancers,
meaning “without any choreographers input” No doubt that this music is very suitable to modern and expressionistic dance.
To create music in this manner one needs lot of fantasy, instinct and a meditative state of mind, just concentrating won't do! With a painters pallet
full of possibilities to improvise in numerous styles, probably a few hundred from baroque to minimal music, it still is a concept that does not necessary
will lead to good results. But experience does, and that's what Tommie has. During the years “everything” was asked - Medieval scales combined with
21th century minimal, and expressionistic sounds in jazzy rhythms and always a Satie like aleatoric serenity to combine the parts together.

A positive element compared to pre-composed music is the lack of any friction between composer and interpreter as they are the same person at the
same time. Therefore the result sounds very natural and pure with a spiritual touch. There was only a tiny bit of after editing needed which is a delicate
matter because structures should not be disturbed and melodic lines have to be worshiped.
