Description
This is a solo piano piece I wrote a long time ago for a friend, played live. She liked impressionistic music, so I tried to write accordingly...

like the painting
It evoked a strong desire to daydream :-) Subtle, intriguing and mysterious. It sounds so free spirited and improvised. I wish i could call that up. :-)

Thanks for having a listen, and I'm glad you liked it! I just left a comment on your "Shoo Shoo Bop" collab, which I really liked! You've worked on some of the best collaborations here at MJ's!

A pensive restless quality...
... to this theatrical piece. I see spotlight on a lone dancer on a darkened stage. She's searching for something with controlled and calculated grace.
Suddenly she's taken hold of and tossed about becoming a spinning whirlwind - just as suddenly she's let go falls helplessly to the ground. Slowly she lifts herself up to again begin her search.

A short and fascinating study played with great passion and a musical treat Clark.
Best,
Charlie

Thanks
Thanks a lot, Charlie; as you know, I am a big fan of your music, so I'm glad you were able to have a listen. What a great discription! I sometimes think that, rather than make a movie first, then add music, someone should try making the music first, then making a film about it... Although I'm sure it's been done... "Fantasia," for instance... (?)

A perfect title.....
This piece evokes a dream sequence in an older film musical.

Bernstein comes to mind although I don't know quite why.

I also hear cello and muted brass in places, going off on their own musical tangent against this backdrop.

If I had one gripe it would be your lady friends attention span. Too short. (Ha ha).

Should I expect this theme to be developed??

Take care.

Paul.

Thanks
Hi Paul, you make a very interesting comment! I was a little surprised at first that you heard Bernstein-like qualities here, but then I realized that maybe the faster, more rhythmically-urgent section about 2/3 of the way through might be what gave you that association... Interesting. I have no plans for further development of this... This is part of a set called "Ten Short Piano Pieces," so I was thinking miniatures as I wrote them. The other ones are almost all shorter.

Thanks again!

I agree.....
I agree about the section that evoked Bernstein being towards the end. There is a small section where the type of sound/technique brought a vivid picture of 1950'ish musicals that had some sort of surreal section, usually with one actor/dancer and a sparse set, to my minds eye.

I would be very interested in listening to other pieces from your set. If they are in the same or similar vein I'm sure there would be quite a few people, besides me, who would love to hear them.

I learn such a lot from this type of classical piece, such as technique, phrasing, articulation and arranging.

Thanks for sharing it with the world.

Take care.

Paul.

...in the impressionistic genre. And beautifully done. So glad to be able to listen to such fine music and "talk" to the composer/performer.

Another fine, fine piece of art, Clark...

A frozen progression...
I will first mention that I am frozen in the Baroque/Classical/Romantic era, and never quite made it into the Impressionistic era (Monet and Debussy leave me squinting incomprehensibly)... my loss. I must say that although this wanders into sort of Debussy territory, it seems more listenable than much of his stuff, so you did well with a tough audience like me. Not my style, but mostly abstract and fluffy. Definitely well-written, performed and recorded, though. :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis

Thanks
Thanks, Eduard. You mean you don't like "The Girl With the Flaxen Hair?" "Clair de lune?" "Golliwog's Cakewalk?" How is this even possible??? Those are three of Debussy's most popular piano pieces, so if you haven't had a chance to hear them, I highly recommend them... If you have heard them and remain unswayed, then fair enough! We all like what we like, and there's nothing wrong with that.

While I like a lot of Debussy, Ravel is one of my all-time favorite composers; he has been compared to Mozart, for writing so many 'perfect' pieces in which there is not a single superfluous note, and melodic invention abounds. Abounds, I tells ya!

drakonis said 4425 days ago (June 5th, 2007)
now Ravel...
I think I was traumatized by having to listen to "La Mer" over and over as a child... but yes, I've heard Golliwog and Clair de Lune, and they are less impressionistic and thus more popular, and yes, I like them better :-) But I agree about Ravel, not only a fabulous composer, but also an amazing orchestrator... after all, when we hear Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition", it is usually Ravel's orchestral transcription, not Mussorgsky's original piano piece we hear. Anyway, I remain unswayed about Debussy (and Monet.) Besides, if I liked *everything*, I'd have to enjoy Hovannes, Brittney Spears, John Tesh, Death Metal, and the complex overtones of fingernails on a chalkboard. (evil smirk)
ttfn,
Drakonis

You mean you don't like John Tesh? What are you, some kind of anarchic iconoclast or something??? Next you're gonna tell me you don't like Yanni, Kenny G, Meatloaf, James Blunt, etc.... a veritable who's who in musical greatness.. This is all too much too handle... must lie down...

Exceptional
Your music is always accessible to me, even though its vocabulary is much more extensive and more "outside" than my own. The dissonances are very effective and communicate deeply. This is a tool I do not own.

Very enjoyable flow, very polished and professional, like all your work, Clark.

Thanks
Thanks Mr. Pucker... er, Patrick! One of the beautiful things about musical communication is that it can happen in so many ways, irrespective of the tools we happen to have and use. And you already have a wealth of tools, that you always use to great advantage!

(It seems like we're overdue for another Futzpucker composition! Is something in the works?)

very well played -
Each note was- oh- for lack of a better way to say it - well placed. Others here have described it in a much more sophisticated way.
This song is one I could easily play for my students, and they would love it. They'd also make up long stories about what was happening in the song, (I'm thinking lower primary, here.) As a matter of fact, I try to expose students to more impressionistic and 20th century stuff than I was, because I want them to have less of a phobia about modern music. This is short, descriptive, and holds enough of a melody line that they would become involved in it.
Oh - i like it, too. It's not fluffy or comforting, but it's good!

composerclark said 4425 days ago (June 5th, 2007)
Thanks
I love that you expose your students to more 20th-century music than you heard as a student; I think you're right, that the earlier we hear this kind of music, the less likely we are to develop antipathy or snobbery against it as we grow older. My experience, and that of pretty much any teacher of young kids that I have talked to, is that young kids are generally receptive to this kind of stuff, especially if it has a programmatic title that sparks their imagination. This is from a set of short piano pieces, which I played for elementary school students at a school visit a number of years ago, and they seemed to respond well. They seemed eager to make up a story to go along with each piece, which was fun for me.

Thanks!

PS I'd be curious to know what the reaction was if you were ever to play this for your students.

I like this
Pensive/dream/frantic/exhaustion rather than a calm state.
The pianist's performance is excellent and I enjoyed the dynamics in the playing and in the recording.
composerclark said 4425 days ago (June 5th, 2007)
Thanks
Thanks, Bill. I'm glad you were able to appreciate the performer's dynamic control; she did a wonderful job, especially in getting so quiet as to be almost inaudible some times, which is very hard to do.

Thanks!

Literally! Well, no, not literally... they're still alive and all, but the point is that they liked it. A lot. Literally!

Aw heck...
...you've got the MacJams Critical Big Guns listening on this one...

Anything I say will reveal my ignorance. Again.

You know what this reminds me of? Hitchcock... if we're talking movie sorts of things, I'm thinking 'impressionism meets suspense'... And in fact, what do I know, but dissonance seems at times to EVOKE suspense...one strains towards resolution... or I do, at any rate...It's like something has been tipped justly slightly past the balance point, and is straining towards a new point of balance that may not arrive...

A heroic impulse for less certain times...

I love listening to your stuff, Clark. We at The Institute ARE going to be needing your brain...

Ed

Thanks
Thanks, Ed. I really like your description of Hitchcock visual imagery... This piece, like virtually every piece I ever wrote, was written without any thoughts of a title or programmatic association, and it was only after I finished it that I tried to figure out what was being evoked here, and what a good title might be. It seemed to have both a suspenseful element, as if walking home very late at night in an isolated area, and hearing footseps behind you, wondering if you are imagining this, and a calming, dream-like feel, which is how it got its title. But all this does sound very Hitchcockian, you're right!

As for my brain, I am feeling very nervous right now, wondering when your goons from the institute will be paying me a call... I think I'm living out the plot to my submission... EEK!

You should know...
My partner has never really risen to the point of gushing over my music when I've asked him to listen, until today. He's into folks like, Mozart and artist with names like, Caravaggio - And he's a Shakespearean, you know. (I don't know these names - I had to google them just to post this comment)

But back to my point - Today, when I gave him my headphones and asked him to listen to music that I had just created, I got a fairly different response then what has become, par ftc. His eyes beaming wide, with a huge smile on his face, he asked, "YOU DID THIS!?!?!?" - REALLY!?!?!?" It was on repeat in itunes, and it continued to play over and over, as he stood there, listening. - It really almost bothered me - He sported a look of disbelief mixed w/ a smile of total contentment.

"This is really good!" he said.

Finally, guilt started to roll in and I was starting to feel as though this little lie grew bigger than I had intended - It was time to confess that no, I didn't create this piece of music, and in fact, I was just about to offer up a few words of gratitude and appreciation to the real creator of said, work of art.

It's the least that I could do...

Really Clark, I'm not so qualified as to be able to tell ya all of the reasons why this IS a work of art, but I do rub elbows w/ folks who can...

Thank you, Mister Ross! Glad to see that you're still posting at MJs. It does 'round up', 'what is' truly talent here... Dion"

Thanks
Ha! That was a great comment... you are very, very funny, in addition to being a huge talent and maybe the most generous soul at MacJams!

From Wikipedia: Caravaggio was considered enigmatic, fascinating, rebellious, and dangerous. He burst upon the Rome art scene in 1600, and thereafter never lacked for commissions or patrons, yet handled his success atrociously.

In fact, he killed a guy in a brawl and had to flee Rome... Man, can I relate to that!

Okay, not really, but there are reasons I live on an island in the North Atlantic, as opposed to, say, Rome...

Anyway, that was a great, make-my-day comment, and I thank you for that.

Hearing...
...your work here is like listening to fine diamonds being polished with intensity and great care. The unity in this number is startling as you move gracefully from a one note repetition to extravagant splashes of energy and then back again with effortless poise. ... Can you tell I love this number? I hate it when someone says, "It sounds like..." To me, Clark, it "sounds like" YOU, period: inventive, subtle, and enigmatic. This is a REAL trip! You've opened my eyes to some interesting possibilities. (And I liked someone's comment above about making the film AFTER the music. Great idea...
Peace.

Timeless stuff
A dash of one of Gershwin's preludes, a splash of Debussy, just a hint of Bernstein.

A fine recipe indeed.

Beuatifully realised and performed. Melodies left tantalisingly unformed and rhythms indeterminate.

Works for me.

Now, I know ..
.. what impressionist painting looks like, and like it a lot, but I'm a little embarassed to say that I didn't even realise there was an impressionist school in classical music (guess who wasted time in high school music classes?!). Having said that however, if this is an example of said genre, then I'm in. This actually took me (and before I'd read the impressionist bits) to wandering around Marc Chagall's museum in Nice - maybe it was the title - hearing footsteps (lots of them, belonging to a class of 7 year olds on their school excursion) was a part of that experience.
I'm very envious of your ability with the keys - hey, you can probably even read the black dots!
Very nice piece Clark!

Thanks for the great comment... The part about hearing footsteps at the Chagal museum in Nice -- lots of them, belonging to 7-year olds -- made me smile; it is a meaning of "hearing footsteps" that I hadn't considered when I titled this piece (I was thinking of it in a more suspenseful-being followed late at night - kind of way, but I really liked your description.

And sadly, I must confess that this is not me playing; it's an old friend and former colleague, who is a fantastic performer.

Thanks again!

I don't think I would have access to someone of your caliber in the real world, but here at MJ, I can get to know people that you would think you'd have to wait in line to see... you've always exibited such a mastery in you're compositions.. And when I listen to what you are able to acheive, I'm flumoxed that you've afforded me the kind respect that you have... It one thing when your mom praises you... It's quite another when Mr Ross give a nod.... and when ever you post anything, I love to read you're answers to comments... your intelligence shines through in your sense of humor

And let me just add that I really appreciated your comment as well! As you know, I am always blown away by your music, so it means a lot to me when you leave a comment.

Regarding your comment on teaching, I can tell you this: Teaching is a mug's game (partly kidding, partly not...). I would guess that about 90% of my students have never heard my music, nor have any interest in hearing it, and very few of those who have heard it have anything positive to say about it. Not complaining, such is life when you teach, and really, that's fine by me. But I guess that's one of the main reasons I joined MJ's, to find out how people respond to my music. Thanks again for letting me know!

Thanks very much, Marcello. You have good ears; I was indeed going for a kind of French impressionist sound here, kind of like Debussy. I appreciate your taking the time to listen and comment.

Wonderful!
This is a real nice piece of work. I enjoyed the recording very much and the style of music is enjoyable. Very great piece by the production and performance.

Take Care

The distance
The "5 Short Pieces for Piano", if I have the title correct, seemed much warmer and closer than this piece did. I like the contrast of them as a set. Also, the rushed, frenetic feeling towards the end of this has such a different flavor than the rest of the suite. I really enjoy the sense of exploration in your compositions; it's something that draws me to a piece of music.
Thanks,
-greg

Thanks
Glad you enjoyed it. This piece is actually from the same set as the '5 short Piano Pieces' that I posted here -- the complete set is called, cunningly, '11 Short Piano Pieces,' and they are all slightly different in character, although, as you point out, this one is fairly distinct in style and character from the 5 piano pieces you heard already. The thing I was going for here was a feeling of dreaminess, but a dream in which there is a gradual buildup in tension until it reaches its peak, approximately 61.8% of the way through. Thanks again!

This is
A very pretty piece and I think you allow the listener to "write" its back-story. Thank You.
