From the recording Valentine Hill
When a piece is composed, and in the time it take to refine the
arrangement and work of the finer details in preparation for recording, there is usually a lot of time to search for a fitting title. One that reflects
the music and whatever life situation or events that brought it on.
However, the improvisations that weave throughout my work, spring out
of the moment at the piano. Stream of consciousness music as it were,
the nature of improvisation.
Titling these pieces, is all again a different process. Case in point is,
THE LADY IN BLUE.
The "Lady" here, is a painting, one of Kristin's favorites that she aquired
while living in India. It takes up the better part of a wall, and I simply
looked up at it while I was dreaming up a title for this piece.
The painting was given a different title by the artist, but it is of a women
floating in an atmosphere of blue, so hence my take on it.
