Old Memory

A little song

A little song
on the nature of memory:
how you hold onto some more than others–

playing them

over and over in our heads
until all meaning fades
in a blind cacophony of self-pity
–a senseless blur.

Later I return to form,
or at least close enough
to close,
and forget for a while.

Really sweet and longing progression. Love the variations and shifting paths. The disintegrating feel in 2:00-2:45 is very powerful.

And just noticed - 'improv' and 'onetake'. Wow. You really bring some direct emotions into this piece.

Kind of love this poem accompanying an instrumental song idea here, although I think that's mainly because you pull off both aspects so wonderfully. Great Satie dissonance at parts.

very peaceful and stimulating to thought (no trouble for me to work while listening to this)... :)
