An Improvisation A Day

Pianist Eric Barnhill has a fine little blog that features on an almost daily basis an improvisation in the "classical music" style.
Says Barnhill, "My improvisations tend to begin with melodic motives and fragments. When improvising I feel more like an onlooker, as these components I’ve introduced coalesce into themes and melodies, then break down into new fragments that came out of the previous activity. Harmonic structures open and close like an accordion."
