Instants was recorded on December 4th 2021 in Vienna The first 14 tracks are free improvisations with a compositional approach, i.e. instant compositions. Track 15 is a piano solo version of Cuetchma, a composition originally written for the diatonic accordion. The piano is played both on the keyboard and inside the body by using e-bows, glass bottles, hands and strumming or plucking the strings. Tracks 3 and 11 use overdubbing of several tracks played in immediate succession.
This album echoes my Ph thesis on Instant composing. (Stefan Heckel)
