From A High Window
for solo piano
Written & Produced by David Paul Jones
From A High Window is a cycle of eight short piano pieces developed from unused sketches from my 2015 theatre soundtrack to Right Now — directed by Michael Boyd for a co-production with the Bush Theatre, London; Ustinov Studio, Bath and Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh.
The pieces form a musical narrative based on Raymond Chandler's detective novel High Window (1942), exploring a moody, film noir-inspired soundworld of enigma, contemplation and suspense.
From A High Window was written and recorded in my home studio during Lockdown, April-May 2020.
The sheet music and recording will be released on my website and digital streaming platforms on World Piano Day, 29 March 2021.
