Evolutionary of Freeplay: Keith Jarrett’s “Bordeaux Concert”

What did he actually do on stage? Well, he played the piano. If that’s enough as an answer, you don’t necessarily have to read on. But Keith Jarrett occasionally spoke of the fact that he doesn’t play alone, rather he is the agent of something bigger. Here we are with metaphysics. If you are not interested in this, you can also continue reading. The fact that he “played” did not come across Jarrett’s thin lips that often without an attribute. Something like “Free Playing” rather. What was meant by this was a complex process in which playing out of nothing, letting oneself happen, the unconscious and the inner drive, in other words: the brain and nerves play a not unimportant role, i.e. the neurosciences are touched. If you don’t feel like it, you can now opt out as well.

The piano remains. Despite its eighty-eight keys, two hundred and thirty steel strings and its almost unlimited harmonic-polyphonic possibilities, Keith Jarrett often found it to be limited and wanted to expand the technical possibilities of the instrument immeasurably with its subtle mental and rabid physical attacks. This touches on the nebulous genre of music of the future.
