and i

a bit of an experiment…

I call this piece “and i”. Technically this is weekly piano improvisation #61, but I decided to sing the melody that came out of this one.

Please let me know what you think! Should I sing more, or just stick to the piano? hahaha

This one is kept mostly in the mid range of the piano, but has kindof a singing melody to it. please let me know what you think!

Weekly Piano #59

Alrighty, i’m back on the ball!! Here is my next improv. I hope you enjoy!

This is a mellow improvisation that travels through various minor chordscapes.

I’m not sure specifically what the imagery is that I had in mind, but it’s definitely mellow and an expression of solidarity.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Oy! I just realized it’s been 3 crazy weeks since my last improv. These weeks involved recording an album in Greenfield, MA, playing a show in New York, some shows around Chicago including a live recording and a live broadcast, and lots of practicing.

But, I’m getting back on the ball with my piano improvisations, starting NOW!

So, I give you, weekly piano improv #58!! (56 and 57 are on my youtube account, but not on this blog. youtube.com/weeklypiano)

I just posted this, and @kendrickhuynh already posted a comment on the youtube page, haha, thanks Kendrick!

I’ve been covered!

My awesome twitter fan @yukiest played and uploaded my Weekly Piano improv #38. I love her version! check it out.

Here’s my original:

This is a soft melodic improv – lots of people have been saying they like this sort of style. Please let me know what you think!

I got the sweetest gift the other day. One of my fans in Taiwan (named Jade) sent me a beautiful bookmark engraved with a traditional Chinese symbol, in a very elegant case. I keep it by the piano to remind me of the connection that I am blessed to share with you.

This improvisation starts off very free, without a consistent melody. The melody then forms organically out of the chord structure. The organic development of the rich chord structures in the second half of it is a reflection of my progression lately with my music, practicing 8-hour days and writing music every day. I’ve had a new-found dedication since I got back from Thailand.

I’d love to know what you think.

Peace and love,
Weekly
