Impromptus Vol. 1
  • Released: October 6, 2009
  • 12 track(s)

Impromputs Vol.1 CD released in 2009 was a sort of experiment in the making. Thad spends many hours recording improv, and decided to put together a CD containing songs created over a period of about a year (2008). The Impromptus Vol. 1 CD is the result. Thad Plans on releasing more volumes in coming years.
By definition an impromptu is a musical composition or performance with little or no previous preparation, such as an improvisation. Although there is generally no form or structure associated with an impromptu, it did in the 19th Century, become a term used for compositions with clear-cut forms, such as ternary and rondo. Pieces such as Four Impromptus, Op. post. 142 (D. 935) by Schubert, and impromptus by Chopin and Liszt, often used some form or structure. Thad’s impromptus typically have no form or structure, and are created by simply hearing or briefly playing a melody or musical idea, then improvising through the piece while beginning the recording process. Each piece is then completed primarily with little or no preparation. Thad typically spends several hours a week practicing improvisation, and recording his sessions as he practices, which in-turn has produced the impromptus created so far.
