Great News! I am the first ever Klavins endorsed Global Artist representing the Middle East and South-East Asia regions. I am thrilled to be representing such an authentic and passionate brand of pianos that stand for everything I value; Boundary pushing, Imagination, Future-focussed, Dedication to sound, Fearlessness and Individuality. David Klavins is truly a genius within the piano building world and it is a great honour to be able to call him a friend and co-collaborator. I cannot wait to share with you all the recordings and videos that I made with him this year.
On March the 25th I will be playing a concert on the Una Corda in the workshop where it was first built here in Vác, Hungary as part of International Piano Day celebrations for 2018.
I am so excited to be sharing the stage with Bruno Sanfilippo as we have both released through 1631 records and I have been following his career for 2 years. He is a rare talent!
In January I was delighted to travel all the way from Cambodia to Hungary to visit mastermind piano builder David Klavins at his extraordinary Workshop in Vác. For the last 2 years David has been building the world's largest upright piano, commissioned by Nils Frahm, and he invited me to record and shoot a music video on this extraordinary machine.
We filmed 3 videos. Here is the first improvisation. Enjoy!
I'm delighted to be playing a live piano set at the iconic Watergate Club in Berlin on the 25/10/17 for the Impress 3 year anniversary Party. Impress is a progressive Italian Dj and Art collective that has thrown events all over Europe and I'm beyond excited to be featured as part of their Art meets Live Painting event playing with the talented Guillherme Rodgruigues on improvised cello. We're opening the celebrations before Marco Effe and WEG take to the decks.
Starts at Midnight.
Thrilled to announce that two of my piano compositions have been selected by Nils Frahm for his official Piano Day Soundcloud Playlist for 2017.
The first one, "Angkor", inspired by my many visits to Siem Reap in Cambodia and the ancient Kingdom that build the most beautiful temples on Earth.
These tracks were recorded and pre-released especially for Piano Day for this compilation.
Next month I fly to Bangkok to record these tracks along with 7 others for my upcoming Piano Works release at Paul Barton's Feurich sponsored studios. Very excited to work with Paul Barton again. He has garnered over 27 million Youtube views through his exceptional piano performances on his gorgeous Feurich.
Here is the Official Piano Day List 2017. Enjoy!
Last month I was lucky enough to be invited to the Karma Sound Studios official Songwriting Camp in Chris Craker's luxurious beachside studios in Pattaya, Thailand.
This is where I had spent some time recording piano and vocals for my second album "Atlas" a few years earlier so it was lovely to be back in one of my favourite studios.
Thailand + Thai Food + Beach + Intense Writing Sessions + Talented Songwriters= Happiness.
It was a week of intense writing with incredible songwriters and producers from all over the world. I was blown away by the standard and made some lifelong friends while writing an incredibly diverse range of tracks for different label briefs globally.
Great camp. Great times. I recommend it highly if you want to be productive and expand your network.
I'm happy to announce that Swedish Neo-Classical Label 1631 Recordings have released my improvisation "Les Jardins de la Carambole" as part of the Piano Cloud Series Volume Two
1631 Recordings was established in the summer of 2015 by Mattias Nilsson and David Wenngren. Both Mattias and David are well respected names in the world of contemporary classical and experimental music. Mattias started his own label Kning Disk in 2005 and David have been making critically acclaimed music for more than a decade, most notably with his project Library Tapes.
The Series features some incredibly talented artists such as Federico Albanese, Matti Bye and Angus MacRae.
The improvisation was recorded spontaneously during an afternoon recording session at Paul Barton's Feurich endorsed studios in Bangkok, Thailand using the fourth harmonic pedal.
Hope you enjoy the Series!
I'm happy that the lovely people over at Stationary Travels believe my improvisation "After Theory" is one of the stand out tracks on a list that includes such esteemed composers as Olafur Arnaulds and Chilly Gonzales...and of course, Nils himself.. it is an honour!
I am thrilled to announce that my improvisation "After Theory" has been selected by Nils Frahm as part of his annual "Piano Day" Playlist for 2016.
Piano Day was created by Nils as a celebration of all things piano related..and falls beautifully on the 88th day of the year to honour the 88 keys of our tool.
Very excited to present this new site..be patient as it is updating currently!
Thanks - Amanda X
