Lori-Ann Speed is a gifted pianist. On this recording of a concert in Vancouver her own beautifully tuneful piano pieces alternate with spoken tracks of contemplative words from many sources.

On an earlier CD, Art as Flirtation with Surrender she accompanies her own English and French poems on keyboard with a rich and rhythmical backing of guitar, violin, cello, trumpet, shakuhachi, and a wide variety of percussion. In the Wake of a Whisper is another CD of strong piano pieces, in turns wistful and passionate, backed by guitar and synthesizer.
