About

This Debussy-style piano duet improvisation combines with recorded material and software instruments to create a gentle seaside-inspired atmospheric piece. which has been notated as a visual accompaniment and for reproduction.

In this compositional study, I am taking influence from Claude Debussy to produce a recorded piano improvisation blended with ambient material of natural sounds. My own piece of music will draw on the composer’s philosophical approach to his music, his Arabesque No. 1, Clair de Lune, Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum and accounts by his peers of his improvisation at the piano. My goal is to compose a compelling piece which paints an evocative scene through a blend of musical and recorded tracks.
