Star Showers (Improvisation for Dianne No. 4)

Description
Dianne literally described this improvisation as floating in space being showered by stars. I almost always include an improvisation which uses as many notes as possible being played across the full range of the keyboard as fast as possible. This provides a powerful vibrational experience for the person or the couple lying under the piano. These improvs don't always end up being tracks I want to share, but I'm happy with how this one turned out.

A more technical piece
Stunning playing. Loved it again. I am just downloading before I listen at this point. This one cut off suddenly at 2:51 though, dont know if that was an accident so I figured I would let you know. AMAZING playing on this one. The piano almost sounded like a harp at times. Loved it. Would love to hear the whole piece if you have it. AWESOME

Thanks
Hi Charles, glad to here it was just a computer glitch getting the way of hearing the whole track. I'm thinking of including these two on my first Under the PIano CD. It's a bit of a chore choosing. I've managed to accumulate 222 tracks! from my improvisation sessions done during Under the Piano sessions. Luckily I've been evaluating them as I go and rating them in my iTunes player. So I am not having to listen to all 222 to make choices.

Suits autum, Feter's right.
As Feter said, it suits autumn. Beautiful flow, you were definitely in the pocket. Too bad I wasn't laying under the piano for this--although I probably wouldn't be your first choice, haha. Very nice improv, glad you recorded it.

Coooolllll!!!
You know your way around a piano.... Great stuff.

Oh, and great job recording. I've heard far worse piano sounds from far more expensive equipment.

Well Thank you. And I am getting that some "creativity" around naming pieces might be a good idea : )

What a wonderful way
to share the music. I would love to do that sometime. Lying under the piano is on my "bucket list" now. Beautiful simply beautiful

Cascading points of light
Despite the level of activity in this song there is a restfulness and wonder that is remarkable in what you have captured. It sounds like you have 4 arms - there's a lot going on and as you say you use the entire range of the instrument well.

Gorgeous track. Thank you for the download,
Doug

It seems we live in a world that has largely forgotten the value of beauty. But beauty is important. Beauty is invaluable because in the presence of beauty we are transported into the moment. In that moment all our fear, anxiety, anger and concern di... [see more]
