Kiev Decays to Dust

I had not touched my keyboard for a long time – couple months? So it was inspiring to play it again. I set it up in the living room of the new house and played pianoteq on my laptop using a Just Intonation tuning (below). Actually I had to improvise the piece twice since I screwed up saving from pianoteq standalone and had to fire up Sonar 8.5 to capture the performance. Then I edited the performance to what you hear. About 20% of the notes were messed with – the rest is the original improvisation.

The title comes from the Collaborative Ambient Project for which I wrote this piece and is sponsored by a Russian associate Luigi Verona. I’ll bet this is the only solo piano piece he’s received so it will be interesting to see if its accepted.
