Here is a sneak preview of my 2015 Wyeth-Inspired layered/looping piano album in collaboration with producer Will Ackerman!
"Catherine is a great pianist, composer, and improviser." - George Winston, pianist
I will be performing three concerts at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, PA, introducing my new pieces inspired by the Wyeth family of painters. Concerts are March 12, April 16, and May 2 (details on Upcoming Appearances Page)
I recorded the first of these new works in January in Vermont with producer Will Ackerman, looping recordings of the acoustic grand piano and layering the sounds like Andrew Wyeth layered his paint in egg tempera. I'm very excited at these concerts to be using a piano mic, keyboard amp, and looping pedal to perform these pieces live.
Hoping for an album of these works in 2015!
