At the beginning of 2011, an old friend of mine, poet Eugen Suciu, asked me to join him musically in reading some of his poems. I finally had the opportunity to play a very good instrument, a brand new Steinway in the Composers Union’s Auditorium. I was thinking of extending the time of the recording and try to make a new solo album. In the past few decades I learned that one shouldn’t go to these sessions neither too well prepared (having a pre-established play list), nor solely leaning on the moment’s inspiration (which may or may not come around). Two or three sketches and musical ideas could be helpful for solitary improvisation, even if freely approached.

I was thinking to do the same this time, but I could only find one sketch in my notebooks, ‘So Simple‘, which I had written some time ago and the first two measures of a blues that I had abandoned. The next day I used this fragment as a starting point for improvisation, trying different pathways, similar to the screenplay of Tom Tykwer, Run Lola Run. The piece’s structure was A1, A2, A3, A4 and so on, meaning that it had a free form, with the possibility of starting all over anytime it was necessary. But without the sense of melodic continuity, of harmonic metamorphoses, without the implication of memory, this modality of making music has slight chances to succeed.

In that winter day, I recorded two versions of the sketch, Blue Prelude I and II. I then continued with a suite of spontaneous compositions using different techniques of free improvisation: sound exploring, tracking the energy flow – a sort of gestualism, ostinatos and so on. Eventually I gave names to these improvisations according to what they suggested: to restless awaiting – Desert of Tartars, to obsessive repetitions – Debris of A Song; one piece with “ornithological” character I called it Strange Visitor, another one, more dynamic – Harpsychora, with reference to the Harpsichord, Kora – the African instrument, or Terpsichore, the muse of dance and music. Knowing, or, rather, hoping that the whole work will be someday on an album, I found a title for it: Dinner for One, in reference to the well known theatrical sketch aired on western tv channels, on New Years Eve.

And so, in the end, you have this album in front of you.
