The Broken Saints Concert

by tobias tinker



In 2004 I joined a team of creative people to transform the Broken Saints online series, for which I had already written and produced the body of the soundtrack, into a 4-dosc collector's edition DVD set. At the end of the rather intense process, I thought it would be interesting to take some of the themes which had become important in the series, and put them into a different and more intimate musical setting: as a solo piano concert. Thus I have selected four themes - two from previously extant material, two composed specifically for the series - and used them as 'springboards' for the extended improvisations on this album. The resulting journeys, almost 78 minutes in total, took me quite far from the source material, but I hope I have not lost its essential spirit...
