Most of the tracks on 'Strange Attractors' were recorded live in concert and paint a surprisingly wide range of pictures, from the frenetic over-caffeinated musings of 'one cup too many' to the sweeping emotional tide of 'The Asymptote'. The evident influences upon these piano improvisations are varied, ranging from George Winston's elegant manipulation of tonal relationships to Claude Debussy's impressionistic, aural snapshots. Also apparent are traces of German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen's compositional techniques based on geometric structures and his fascination with 'open forms' derived not from a melodic phrase, but from a particular mood.
