Ryan Whittier is currently creating and compiling a small collection of short solo piano works. Some are brand new, and some are from recent years. The moods of the pieces are generally nostalgic, wistful and contemplative – some with a touch of mystery - and the compositional style is exceptionally sparse. Some of the pieces create a feeling of moving in slow motion. Many of the compositions in this collection will be particularly effective as film score music … a few of the pieces have already appeared as such.
