Peter Urpeth - Solo Piano Counterpoint

Counterpoint is a work in progress in solo piano improvisation designed to act as a kind of diary or reflective space documenting the relationship between the self and improvisation in moments in time.

The first three parts were recorded at St Vincents Church, Edinburgh in early 2018.
