A year ago, Collection came out, gathering excerpts from about 15 solo concerts given between 2014 and 2018 in very diverse places.

Each venue’s specific atmosphere, acoustics, piano and audience had a direct impact on those live recordings.

 I have often wondered about the recordings of artists I closely listen to: what was the context of their creation?

Now as an artist and producer of Collection, I thought it would be of interest to those who appreciate this work to have a glimpse at the actual scenes of its creation.

Further down are track-per-track images taken during the performances or right before, from which each track was then extracted.
