What Remains Behind



 Genre: New Age

Get Flash to see this player.

I wrote this after reading a phrase from one of Wordsworth's poems that really struck a chord with me (no pun intended).

I'd hit something of a rough patch in my life and sometimes it's just easier to express what you're feeling with music.

"We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be..."
-William Wordsworth

the piano is so expressive and wonderfully ambient. you have an
elegant feel and nice spatial placement. the latter i have no idea what i
mean but its the closest thing i could articulate to "not crowding" the
piece with extra stuff. does just fine all on its lonesome...beautiful

What Remains Behind
This is beautiful. There is sadness, and yet not despair. You have a wonderful way of letting the music breathe, just letting it be - no rushing, no crowding. Not afraid of the stillness and silence in between. A delicate touch on the piano, very soft and comforting. Thank you for sharing this piece of heart music.

Total amateur but I love what I do. I've been more focused on the writing and the painting lately so I tend to pop in and out of macjams at random, infrequent intervals. But I love catching up on my favorite artists and discovering some new ones al... [see more]
