Solidification and sparseness

Pianist Jason Moran sees his music as an interdisciplinary endeavour incorporating influences from visual art, film, architecture and design. Musically, Moran takes a modernist approach that brings »new ideas to old things«. »I try to allow design elements – clear lines, contrasts and space – to unfold in my music«, says the classically trained pianist, who was born in Houston, Texas, in 1975.

As a result, harmonic structures solidify, only to – in many cases – open into barren soundscapes in the same song. Moran is open to a variety of stylistic influences, with a penchant for tonal experiments and rhythmic concision. The New Yorker combines traditional aspects from post-bop, avantgarde, stride piano and blues with modern concepts, borrowing from hip-hop culture.
