Album Notes
Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions is my 4th release of original piano compositions, and represents a watershed in my writing, wherein I’ve added string arrangements to augment the piano sounds and the ambient electronic sounds. The album references the metaphysical poet John Donne’s prose tract of the same name, and is also a meditation on death and loss. During the writing of the music, one of my most admired composers, Jóhann Jóhannsson passed away, and to a large extent, his influence on my music is discernible Also, somewhat near the end of the recording process, I had the opportunity to see “CODA,” a documentary about Ryuichi Sakamoto, whose piano works I have always loved and who recently won his battle with throat cancer. I wrote a piece for him on this album, a solo piano composition entitled: "Fishing for Sound Through a Hole in the Ice". The album’s title track is dedicated to Jóhann Jóhannsson.
