Tenerezza

I recorded a demo track of a new piece here in the studio earlier today and thought it turned out quite well so I thought i would post it on here.
The piece is entitled ‘Tenerezza’
I shall be recording tracks for my forthcoming album next week with a view to releasing the album on May 19th to coincide with the Late Shows event here in Newcastle, where I shall once again be performing my Pitch Black Piano concerts.

I hope you enjoy the track.

Name the album competition

Happy New Year

Hi all,
Back into the studio today after an enjoyable festive break. I’m currently working on preparing  library tracks for submission, some library track admin (boring but necessary), editing scores for my forthcoming solo piano sheet music collection and listening to some great work from my friends Sam and Dan Burt who have made this fine collection of trailer music.

The playing and recording of the next solo piano record will have to be put on hold for a while as a result of a fracture of my left thumb sustained whilst stalling my motorbike at the petrol station before Christmas. No boogie woogie for a while…what a dafty!

 

 

Sheet music available for sale.

Recently I have been beavering away on a music score writing package called ‘Sibelius’ putting together sheet music versions of some of my solo piano tracks.

I am very pleased to be able to make them available for sale on this site if anyone would like to have a go at playing them.

Currently available in the shop are ‘Home‘ and ‘Rondo‘ both as printed music which I can post out to you or as pdf downloads for you to print at home.

 

 

Always Getting Better

Recently I completed the score and the sound mix on a short film produced by Shapeshifter Creative called ‘Always Getting Better’

I will post a link to the finished film in due course but I thought I would share a couple of uplifting, hopeful cues from the film with you.

EP Launch at The Late Shows in Newcastle

‘Pitch Black Piano’ – A Late Show Release From An Award Winning Newcastle Composer.

Newcastle based composer Steve Luck is set to release his brand new solo piano EP called ‘Home’ on Friday 13th May 2016. The release will coincide with the ‘Late Shows’ in Newcastle and Steve will be giving free performances of tracks from the EP from his studio on level 2 of 36 Lime Street, NE1 2PQ throughout the Late Show weekend.

The EP is a follow up to last years critically acclaimed debut album ‘Sailing On The Big Sea’. The music is uniquely atmospheric. It is beautifully simple and direct. Contemporary piano music that has a wistful, longing quality but at the same time is  uplifting, joyous and life-affirming. It is a gorgeously melodic collection of work.

You can get to experience these wonderful pieces played live in the dark, as part of the launch of the EP at the Late Shows in Newcastle.

‘Pitch Black Piano’ will take place on level 2 of the historic 36 Lime Street building in the Ouseburn. There will be a total of eight separate performances, scheduled for every half an hour beginning at 7.30 on both Friday and Saturday, the 13th and 14th of May 2016

Every light source in the studio is blocked out to create a very special atmosphere with the focus firmly on listening to the music. The only light in the room comes from a sound sensitive multi-coloured, moving light placed inside the piano, illuminating  the action of the hammers inside of the piano in time with music.

It will be a wonderful shared experience, in an intimate, atmospheric setting. Each performance will last approximately ten minutes and the maximum audience size is just 25.

Steve said “I am very much looking forward to the launch of my EP at the Late Shows. The event creates a unique atmosphere around the city and I’m delighted to be part of it again. I think that the pieces I have composed will suit the intimate setting of the performance space in the studio, and hopefully people will enjoy a memorable experience, hearing the music close up, as part of a small audience sitting in the dark”
