Lately I’ve been feeling very inspired to create and write new music. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been in a much more contemplative mood since the passing of my mother-in-law thinking about her life and her soul. In the last week, every time I sat at the piano I felt like a fountain overflowing. It’s a lovely sensation trying to capture whatever flows out so I’ve had several sessions of just allowing myself to create freely. A few days ago, I decided to record an impromptu piece and have included the spontaneous recording below. Please note that it’s rough as it was the first time I played what you hear for the recording. Creating spontaneously definitely requires letting go completely of any thoughts or attachments or even wanting it to sound good (it also takes courage to share it on the blog as it’s very rough). It is a process of just allowing my fingers to play whatever my heart leads me to. I’m trying to think of a name for the piece and would love to hear what thoughts or feelings it evokes in you and any titles you can think of.
I’m currently working on an instrumental CD and haven’t decided whether or not I should develop this piece and add it as one of the tracks. So far I’ve recorded 6 tracks of different piano instrumentals and hope to record and finish the rest by the end of this year. I will definitely keep you updated.
Here is the piece I recorded. I look forward to hearing your thoughts, suggestions or titles. Thanks for listening. 🙂
