After the first album ‘Deep into Nature’, with beautiful minimal piano music, Steve Ryan Antony composed a beautiful second album for piano solo: ‘Blueprint’. ‘Blueprint’ is about an event that turns life upside down and its effect, its print, on the person experiencing it. All stages of processing it, are described: fighting it, allowing support, regaining one’s own strength and finding one’s own way to deal with it. In the music, there is a clear transition from tension and darkness, to relaxation and light. In a second layer, this album has a healing power in turbulent times today. The album has 11 piano pieces with beautiful covers designed by Amélie Meissner: Stolen Light, Midnight Thoughts, Stained Glass, Cold Mist, You’re Still Here, Polar Star, Aurora, Reverie, Inner Truth, Spreading Wings and Blue Sky. In YOU’RE STILL HERE, you can really feel the presence of a loved one. Sometimes the melody breaks out into a cry of deep sorrow that you alone seem to hear.
I wish you and your audience the best of luck in this special piano adventure.
