Affan is a young composer from London. His love for the piano has inspired six contemporary classical impromptus collected on Origins, his first EP: “I am a self-taught pianist with a great appreciation of the modern classical genre. My style embraces improvisation. ‘Origins’ refers to the creative process that brought the pieces about, my journey exploring the melodies, tempos and harmonies that spontaneously materialise when one immerses oneself in the natural sounds of the piano. I wanted to capture this approach in the unpolished intimacy of the recordings, in the audible mechanics of the hammers and the incidental noises of playing the instrument. This EP is a homage to Otto A. Totland, Julien Marchal and Daigo Hanada whose works—together with that of many others in the modern classical genre—were a key source of inspiration. I am grateful to them all.” (Affan)
