More Info:

Paris-born Jean-Michel Pilc's artistry comes from an expansive imagination and a fearless sensibility of musical exploration. He is self-taught as a piano player and composer. There is liberty that comes with that, an unobstructed view of the palette of music and harmony. On his latest release 'Symphony' Pilc realizes that fearlessness and freedom completely. As he explains, the genesis of the recording came in November 2021:"Right after recording Spanish saxophonist Xose Miguelez's excellent album 'Contradictio,' and inspired by the perfect conditions at OJM Studios in Portugal - beautiful Steinway piano, perfect acoustics and technical conditions - I decided it was time for a "special" session as part of my solo project, so Xose and José Trincado, our sound engineer, were kind enough to let me sit at the piano for as long as I wanted, improvise freely, and be recorded. Without any intention other than making music, I started playing. When inspiration sets in, you leave the "real world" and music leads you through a new universe of it's own. That's what happened, and when I stopped, everyone was so enthusiastic about the result that they generously offered to mix and master it carefully for a future release which they said was inevitable.After listening to it myself, I agreed with their assessment. So here it is, and I hope the listener will go on the same journey I did that day."
