The creation of the album, “Piano Steps,” started in January 2018 and was released on August 28, 2018.
Organic 5-minute piano improvisations were recorded and edited to produce interesting flows of development and musical thought-processes. “Improvisation” is a form of meditation in a way – taking a simplistic musical idea and altering it slightly over the course of 5-minutes, focusing on overall shape and movement.
Chase Chandler, the musician/producer behind the album, uses improvisation as a form of meditation by closing his eyes and allowing musical ideas to flow into each other. This album goes about recording this process in order to share a raw and personally human listening experience with the MusicalGrowth.com community.
From calming nature sounds to soaring piano melodies, this album serves as a wonderful aid in studying, meditation, or general relaxation. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the atmosphere!
“Piano Steps” is dedicated to my wonderful mother who is the reason I play piano in the first place. She worked hard in allowing me the opportunity to take piano lessons at the young age of 3-yrs-old and continued to take me to and from piano lessons when I was 9-yrs-old.
I dedicate this album to my mom because without her sacrifice in allowing for those piano lessons, I probably wouldn’t be the musician I am today without that initial musical influence. And also, a big thanks to her for allowing me to practice as much as I did growing up. Music blaring 24/7 from my room (between piano, trumpet, & voice) requires a lot of patience from the innocent bystanders in the household!
