Description
Hi this is my first piece that I have submitted. It's kind of a sad piece that I doodled live and recorded. I hope you will enjoy it.

Anathema to me is the one that is shunned and left to be alone...

There are lots of booboos so I hope you don't mind. Please comment, I would appreciate it :)

First off..
Welcome to MJ. A very nice reflective piece of work with some wonderful twists and turns. You should check out gail60 here at MacJams. BTW ... thank you for the download ... I did.

booboos in life, and music
they can all be overlooked when the desire, and the result, are beauty.

An interesting choice of a title... I'll assume the meaning of a gift to the gods :-)

I see by your faves and comments that you're finding Magnatone, Kassia, Gail60, etc... and now we have another soulful pianist here... welcome!

I enjoyed this, with its unusual-but-satisfying twists and dynamics.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Nicely put...
Hi again Drakonis:) It has been awhile. So many things in life adds so many distractions but...the one thing that always remains is the love and appreciation for music...The meaning that was in the heart when I titled this piece was more like when someone is shunned or excommunicated. The one bird that fly's alone...TY again for listening:)

Parichayaka said 2328 days ago (May 6th, 2011)
interesting and enjoyable
Much more solid and beautiful than what I would have expected from your description - the chord progressions flow well and I can find more than one lyrical idea that would lend itself to further development. I always enjoy hearing piano music that doesn't sound familiar to my ear, where I can't anticipate the melody or chords, and this improvisation has that kind of subtlety, neither sad nor defining a particular mood beyond one of reflection, maybe?

I really appreciate the comment. One's own interpretation by reflection regardless of the title or lyrics is a very special experience. I must say that your music does that for me :) Take care...patty :)

I guess I'm always very sensitive to my own pieces; not being satisfied most of the time. Sometimes leading me to be too critical for my own good. Appreciate the listen.

This is lovely...
It weaves and flows, then falls and rises. I can see the solitary flight of a bird--uncertain and searching as it navigates the sky. Wonderful, unexpected chord progressions. And the tone of the piano is so warm and resonant. Beautiful. Thanks for posting :)

Thanks Myst, may I call you Myst?? First of all thanks for your kind words, I really do appreciate them. They make me feel so welcomed and excepted. Now, that I have a ton of listening to do, I am looking forward to exploring more your pieces and others alike. Take care and may I say keep creating, for the wonderful gift that God has given us makes all things possible:)

Thanks for sharing this piece, how do you concentrate that hard? For me anyway, elegant voicing is the pianos forte, you certainly have a grasp in that department!

Thank you for the kind words first of all. Second of all "how do you concentrate that hard??" Let me answer by asking you the same thing-lol... your song that I'm listening to right now (Righteous Meeting)is in a word WoW!! How do you guys make it sound like your having a blast in some jazz bar joint? I could almost see the dark and smokey filled atmosphere filled with music intellectuals and local patrons XD Thanks again for listening and your comment! patty

Anathemic
The one who is shunned. Tragic. Your music and playing are expressive. Echoing Parichayaka, I enjoy unexpected changes in a musical piece. This has a uniqueness to it that is admirable. I confess to knowing zippo about playing piano, but I very much enjoyed this. More, please.

Your original theme...
...is what haunts me in this music. You do go off in lots of different directions with random thoughts and images, but that return to "home" is so completely compelling. (I would have loved one more pass at it at the very end!). You play with careful emotion and the performance sings quite beautifully, quite soulfully. It is so nice to hear such sensitive piano music here. I hope you will continue to submit new things. I will look forward to that.

I agree, with your comment that maybe another pass of the intro would be good...Hopefully learning more about song writing will help in the creation process as well. Thanks again! patty

What a gift
to be able to sit down at a piano and make it sing of your inner feelings. It makes the lessons worth it, I'm sure, when your fingers know where they must move. Some are shunned because they outshine the rest. Thanks.

I'm glad that you liked it. I want so dearly to play piano as subtle and with as much emotion I can. That is accomplished by striving to do better, which isn't always easy for me. But, by feeling at ease in the mid range section of the keyboard always helps.

There's a certain mystery when you play. Wonderful and intense anticipation. Each shift feels organic and fluid. Even more powerful that you left in the "booboo's".

Thanks a bunch! I love the comment "certain mystery when you play" means a lot to me. I want my pieces to be fluid with the live feeling to it. The booboos sometimes good sometimes bad are just my fingers stumbling to play what the mind is painting :)

Take care and keep creating the wonderful songs you make!
