AN UNEXPECTED ALBUM OF PURE IMPROVISATION
“Capturas is a raw ‘album-portrait’ full of nuances and feelings”.
I. Ortega, Distrito Jazz.
This album, self-released by Jerónimo Martín in 2015, is a set of recordings made during four days in August 2012, in the author’s own home in Bilbao, with a Yamaha wall piano.
All the music on this CD is improvised.
The author’s initial intention was not to make a record, but to train himself in the use of technological resources to make recordings with his own piano.
Using improvisation as an excuse, the result is a set of improvisations that, due to their interest, ended up being published by the author himself.
The music in Capturas is just a sample of so many moments in which the author, sitting at the piano, begins to improvise and enters a psychic state in which the music begins to spill out from within. It is a fortuitous event, which cannot be predicted nor forced, as it is not governed by logic nor pre-planned, but is the result of an expressive need to let loose in which the unconscious does most of the work.
