Have you ever had your portrait painted? A visual artist will seek to create an image of the person who sits before them. It takes a really gifted and skilled artist to capture a true likeness. We believe that it’s possible to paint pictures with music as well as the brush or pen. With our instruments and voices we use improvised music as a means of creating a ‘sound portrait’ of the people we play for.
We don’t pretend to be able to capture an exact likeness of a person as an artist would on canvas, but simply allow ourselves to be guided by impressions that we get of a person (or couple), inspiring us to play a certain motif, chord structure or melody, interwoven to produce a piece of music that we believe captures some aspect of that person’s identity. Like a reflection in a mirror, the image is reflected back in music. The person whose portrait is being played may see themselves portrayed as they’ve never been before!
