Hello everyone!

This is my third full length album – ‘Departure’!

Taking inspiration from traditional sounds and music from all around the world – from Africa, South-East Asia, Central & South America, and beyond – ‘Departure’ is my first album to place a real emphasis on original music.

It is an album built strongly on curiosity, discovery, and freedom…. The freedom from genre, from the limitations of conventional piano playing, and with an expanded sonic palette. Sounds such as that of gongs, bells, cajon, guitar, guiro, metallophones, cowbells, guqin are drawn out from the acoustic piano through various techniques, in addition to the incorporation of thumb piano, melodica, toy piano, and field recordings!

For those who follow my work from classical background (thank you for keeping your minds open, by the way, really appreciate it), there are fleeting moments where familiar classical melodies are quoted and manipulated in midst of worldly sounds of the Indonesian gamelan, flamenco, milonga, salsa, traditional monk chants and more.

The album is scheduled for release at the end of January 2019, with three lead singles ready to be released throughout 2018. Would really love if you may be able to join for the journey! In particular, we will be streaming bits of the final studio session in November to pledgers.

Your support & love is always really appreciated. Please do take time to browse through the pre-order shop on here. There is an assortment of super cool stuff (including single-copy handwritten scores), which may of interest.

Really can’t wait to share my new music and this new journey with you!
