These piano solos, with the exception of “Game of Thrones,” were written between the summers of 2013 and 2015. Initially I was inspired to write darker-sounding pieces similar to some I’ve written in the past, such as “Dance of my Ancestors” (Spirit Touch), “Night Shadows” (Spirit Touch) and “Winter is Coming” (A Southern Sun). Not only did this inspiration come from fans who mentioned these as favorites, I also wanted to create an album that would be the antithesis of my previous album, A Southern Sun. From this, “Castle Moon,” “The Dorian Zone,” “Moon Shadows” and “Night Runner” materialized. The latter was composed while I imagined a beautiful black horse running across an open field underneath a night sky. Another, “A Starry Night,” came from an improvisation at the piano as I observed artwork depicting nighttime scenery.
