Album Notes
(From the back cover of the DVD)
Seven Moons is the first in a series of four completely spontaneous piano solo recordings by improvising pianist and composer, Mark Christopher Brandt. Subsequent recordings have yet to be named or even conceptualized at this point in time.

On October 7, 2014, Mark went into the recording studio in Ashland, Virginia with videographer Scott Nurmi of Mojo Factory Productions and fellow musicians Shaun Jurek and Russell Lucas, both from the band No Explanations, and with recording engineer, Bill McElroy of Slipped Disc Audio, they produced this work of art.

As Scott filmed Mark at the piano from three different angles, Shaun randomly pulled from a bowl pieces of paper with previously written tonal centers on them. He then told Russell, sitting next to Mark at the piano, what key Mark was to spontaneously create a piece of music in. Using a stopwatch, Russell allowed Mark five minutes to improvise a piece of music. The entire process was repeated eight times and produced eight pieces of music, all captured on CD and video as it occurred.
