about

Taking his cues from Debussy and Chopin, composer Kevin Keller filters Impressionist- and Romantic-infused melodies through modern electronics to create beautifully lush, and decidedly contemporary, music for the piano on "Nocturnes".

The ten nocturnes were inspired by the work of San Francisco photographer Seth Dickerman, whose "metamorphic landscapes" were created in moonlight or under low-light conditions, capturing surreal images that were only revealed once he returned to the darkroom. Mirroring this creative process, Keller recorded improvisations at the piano and then "treated" them in his studio, using digital effects to change the sound of the piano into waves, wind, and clouds. About this album, Keller says "I think of this music as a continuation of the process that Seth began almost 20 years ago, when he stood out under the night sky with his camera and captured those fleeting moments in time."

Each of Dickerman's ten images is included in a digital booklet, available with full album purchase.
