Weekly Thing #4: Solo Piano

June 11, 2008 | By | 2 Comments

This week I’m posting something a little different. Unlike the last two songs, this one isn’t bombastic battle music. No, this is actually something that I wrote several years ago. I’ll warn you; it’s a mellow solo piano piece with no strings, crash cymbals or scary choir voices (I’ll probably add that stuff later.)

Now, just so you know: I hate the term “New Age” when used to describe music…mostly because it doesn’t seem to mean anything. I also dislike the term “New Age” because I’m supposed to say things like, “I wrote this when I was going through a very difficult time.” Oh please, I probably wrote this at 3 AM with a pot of coffee next to me and a Doctor Who rerun on TV with the sound turned down. I did record this at home, though. I was just learning how properly record a slightly out-of-tune piano (don’t get me started.)

Um, anyway. This piece is called “West Road” and it runs 4:36, so you know, pack a lunch.[powerpress]
