These events have an unpredictable palette of musical moods, emotions, and textures. For these piano improvisations, Craig Addy invites online listeners to share an Intention they’d like him to re-create musically in the comments.
Vancouver pianist and composer Craig Addy was born in 1962 and has been improvising at the piano since he was a child. That child used to lie under the piano while his mother played beautiful classical music. In 2007, while visiting Showcase Pianos in Vancouver, Craig found himself under a piano again. It had been over 30 years. The power of his childhood experience came flooding back, but this time with a conscious awareness of the effects the vibrations were having on his entire body. Craig combined his unique improvisational artistry with the experience of lying under his grand piano and began sharing this with people in his life. Childhood play and the adult boldness to be playful like a child is how “Under the Piano” was born. During Under the Piano, Craig listens to the individual’s or couple’s personal life stories and captures their essence in the music he creates. Craig has now expanded this skill of re-creating people’s stories and intentions to intimate piano salons and online performances for groups of people.
