LEGERDEMAIN

by Jon Scoville
Legerdemain CD cover - by Jon Scoville

Legerdemain is composed and performed by Jon Scoville.
24 tracks - 53:29 Minutes

From inside the album - "Legerdemain (Old French: light of hand) is the second in a series of preludes for an imaginary keyboard.  Like Palmistry, it uses a digital idiom to forage the borderlines between the computer (hardware) and the imagination (heartware). This album explores some of the many musical territories which I have been traversing for the past 30 years, from the traditional to the experimental:  from blues, boogie-woogie, and jazz to Brazilian, tangos, waltzes, aleatoric, and beyond.
... Yet, ultimately, music isnít about compositional methods or choice of instruments.
  Itís about intuitively organing on sound after another.  There are worlds of music in this disc.  Have a listen.Ē
