SynthBits: Nahre Sol Improvising Over an Irregular Pulse

In her latest video, Nahre Sol explores improvising over a musical sequence she recorded generated from Andrew Huang’s modular system. She transcribes it, analyzes it and breaks it down into several different thematic components. Then she develops an improvisation on the CP88 Stage Piano based on her analysis (complete with humorous descriptions of her melodic and chordal discoveries).

This video is wonderful: It highlights the creative journey of a remarkably talented pianist and composer through world of modular synthesis. Check it out below, and subscribe to Nahre Sol’s YouTube channel for more engaging videos:
