Here’s a quick piano improvisation. It may come across as somber, but I think it’s more about examining oneself and finding things that need to change. I welcome your feedback!
As thunderstorms rolled through the area, today was a dark and blustery day. The brooding skies reminded me of those introspective years many of us have in our late teens and early 20s. Until I met my wife, Rachel, I was really in a great search for meaning in life. I’d often sit on a roof top just letting my mind wander about the whats and whys around me. I thank God that I met her at a fairly young age and became rooted and grounded in the love that we have.
This little improvisation is based on those wandering thoughts from my younger years.
Here’s another piano improvisation from a couple minutes ago. I love the ability to record what I’m playing with little to no fuss. One of these days, I’ll get around to doing a review on my stage piano, the Roland RD-700NX. It’s a beautiful machine. This piece is a little rough around some of the edges; I wish I could regain 10 years of lost technique in a few days, but it doesn’t seem to work that way. Evenso, I quite enjoy this little piece. It was inspired to some degree by the steady cam work in NYC in the movie Limitless. It’s sort of a stroll through life compressed in to 3 minutes.
I recently bought a new stage piano after going well over 10 years without playing. I’m really looking to get back in to writing music. I’ve always had somewhat of an ear for improvisation. Here’s a little improvisation from the night I brought the stage piano home.
