Composites is a collaborative album consisting of 9 original piano compositions created in collaboration with classical pianist Josh Hooke. The album's title, 'Composites,' reflects the creative process that underpinned it’s creation. During the pandemic lockdowns, Josh and I exchanged short piano sketches, building on each other's ideas to produce something greater than the sum our individual contributions. This collaborative approach informed the album's visual identity, which features 9 unique artworks corresponding to each song.
The method of creating the artworks was, in essence, the same as creating the music—compiling scanned imagery of textures, colour and line work to develop a suite of artworks that are greater than the sum of their parts.
Read an interview with Jack and Josh for Novation that goes into further detail on the project. The album is available on all good streaming platforms.
Sheet music for Composites is available in the shop.
