Nocturne [live at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival] comprises three pieces performed live on a partly prepared piano, along additional pre-recorded soundscapes.

The live performance of ‘Klavierstück II’ is a pensive improvisation using essential elements of the original piece. ‘Nocturne’ starts with the ambient sounds whilst the piano seemingly melts into the soundscape and eventually grows into a long
meditative piano solo. ‘Yonder’ is a much more dramatic piece, dominated by the overwhelming sounds of church bells, a sort of “dies irai”, radical, emotional and fiercely poetic.
