Inspirational improvisations and arranged soundscapes for the celebration of life.
Ray Cooper's solo piano album, Tabernacle, released in December, 2005. Tabernacle represents the celebration of life and forward momentum in the face of all of life's challenges. This CD features Coopers's original compositions for piano as performed and recorded at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in Vancouver B.C. In this work, Cooper has created a tapestry of arranged pieces interwoven with improvisational work inspired by moods and emotions - reflecting moments of the day.
When asked about his choice of piano for his first of many instruments, Cooper reflects, "I have never really thought about that - it is something I have done since the age of 4. I feel that in addition to emotional expression, the piano can project every possible aspect of the arrangements I'm working on - it allows me to hear all of the parts and is dynamic - it moves within me. It is a very intimate feeling."
