Melodie

I recorded this not 10 minutes ago. The marvels of modern technology!

You can get big thick books of piano music in China. They are about 5cm thick (don’t ask me what that is in inches!) and crammed full of good stuff.

But sometimes at the end of a piece there are 2 or 3 lines of music left. Instead of leaving a blank page, they put in short pieces, like the one today, Melodie by Massenet or the one I recorded the other day.

I like playing these short things; they’re like punk songs, short and easy. Finding an interesting 1 minute piece feels like you’ve actually put some effort into it, instead of flipping to something that everyone knows and playing that.

Like I said last time, I’m still working on getting an RSS feed that you can plug into iTunes so you can listen to all my stuff as it is published. Sorry for the wait.

    Hey, Max!
    This new blog is a great idea! I am looking forward to even more musical offerings from you. The crickets add a unique touch to the music!
