Excuse my very tardy posting (especially those of you on the east coast and even eastern-ly-er. I have been running around, driving, driving, driving and noodling around to get ready for these shows this weekend here in Salt Lake City.
I stayed the night at Jonathan’s mother’s house. She has a piano. I thought, “I haven’t done a piano song yet, so I think I will.” This is a study in octaves. I love octaves. There’s just something very interesting about this interval. They are exactly the same note but very different- a whole span different! I like the feeling of the octave and the color the octave brings to a song.
I also love listening to things we don’t always here. Sometimes in a piano recording, you can hear the player depress the piano pedal. You can hear every string react from the movement and they ring simultaneously. I love that moment. I exaggerated it and used it for myself in this little study.
I am about to run about again and more rehearsals tonight… but will try to be on time tomorrow for the posting, as it’s a good goal to be on time to things in general.
