Laraaji recorded Moon Piano live in a Brooklyn church, with the sounds of both the everyday happenings of the church and New York itself finding their way into the album.
Designed as a companion piece to his Sun Piano album, which was taken from the same session, Moon Piano sees Laraaji crafting more sombre, melancholy improvisations.
He presents the album as a “contemplative sound painting, embracing quiet tranquil unfolding of nurturing reflection”.
