Happy to announce a new collaboration with pianist Nicholas Phillips! Nick heard my previous collections of Piano Thoughts, as well as other clips online, and reached out to me. I will be writing Piano Thoughts. Vol. 3 for him, to be included on a tour of "American character pieces." Here are Nick's words on the project:
"I have wanted to work with Lucas Floyd on something since I first heard his Piano Thoughts, Vol. 1 last year and read through the score. I've enjoyed hearing other pieces for piano he has written since then, and am drawn into the sonic world he creates, so I'm definitely excited that he will be writing me a new piece for 2016. I'll be touring a program featuring 21st century American piano character pieces, so his miniatures will be a great addition."
The premiere will take place in late April at the Center for New Music in San Francisco.
