Franz Schubert Op. 90, No. 11 [more inside]
A short (1:27) original piece of me on solo piano. It's a reworking / different arrangement of a previous tune I posted, which was piano & guitar. This is a slightly different take on rhythm and melody -- more of a contemplative feeling, and still reflective and reassuring (I hope). Happy new year, MetaFilter! [more inside]
"This was an improvisation, actually the second take (Blue 2, or "Too Blue"), during which I had the memory of the Monterey Jazz festival firmly planted in my head, remembering the incredible musicians and music I heard all over the fairgrounds, playing jazz, soul, and lots 'n lots of blues…" ~ Laurie Z.
Here's the MIDI playback of a piano piece I wrote for NaSoAlMo back in 2006. I felt cheeky and riffed on Sigur Rós' "Flugufrelsarinn" for the chorus. An actual quote appears toward the end. [more inside]
