by Vanessa James

‘Paintings on Piano’ is a collection of short stories told on solo piano. Composer Vanessa James used her experience in scoring for picture to create each autobiographical piece with a story in mind. Tracks such as ‘Dandelions in the Wind’ or ‘The House I Grew Up In’ infuse the listener’s imagination for re-creating their own pictures, and experience the atmosphere of each story.

Fusing classical, filmic and popular music influences, ‘Paintings on Piano’ brings a soundtrack to our lives. The composer performed all the pieces, as well as designed and illustrated the album artwork, which was inspired by a dream she’d once had.
