Nightingale’s Reasoning is the debut solo cello recording by Nicholas Jozwiak. He balances extended-technique noise and full-throated sounds to create a playful collection of pieces. Jozwiak’s approach to improvising includes enough space in the form to allow the content to breathe and work itself out. The attitude is not of the self-serious, history-laden artist, but of the joyfully innocent explorer. For Jozwiak, musical improvisation is a tool for learning how to examine the improvisational principle at work in daily activities and in the mind. The recording is a snapshot of a moment in the musician’s ongoing praxis.
