Video On Demand Concert with Peter Kater
In intimate settings over the years, I’ve noticed that I’d feel compelled to play differently depending on who I was playing for. Curious, I started inviting people, one at a time, to lie under the piano while I improvised just for them. Intrigued, I explored further and started sitting and chatting with individuals before playing for them and noticed that while listening to their life stories I’d hear melodies and segments of music in my head. This evolved into what I now call “Piano Readings”; improvised pieces of music inspired by and played for individuals while lying under my piano that I would record professionally and give to them so they could listen to it over and over again. This album is a collection of some of my favorite segments. I hope you enjoy these deeply felt, very personal, solo piano Soul Stories.
