I want to wish a Happy New Year to anyone visiting this page. I am very upbeat about 2022 and envisioning it to be my best year ever. May your New Year be a beautiful clean slate that unfolds with joy!
My newest painting above is named “Autumn Hope.” I have included close ups of it with a slide show at the end of this post.
I am excited to share that last month I heard a new song forming! Exquisite guitar passages enveloped me and my heart swelled with joy. Just when I needed something to uplift me, this new music appeared!
It has been at least three years since I last composed anything new. I plan to record my new song, but am still exploring the multitude of passages and combinations.
I played my new guitar instrumental live on Insight Timer. Tentatively, I am calling it “My Hopeful Heart,” which speaks to healing. It feels like a perfect title to describe my optimism about the New Year.
I recorded a live session through Protools for the first time and below is a lovely recording of my new song in progress, as well as a short introduction for it.
This is another version that I’m sharing, which was recorded a week before my Insight Timer performance. It’s much faster and I haven’t decided the speed for my new composition yet.
My most recent “Magical Piano” track on Insight Timer is named “Music From My Heart – Magical Piano.” It’s interesting that the acoustic song of that name began in 1984. I composed the chorus melody and never finished my song. Thirty years later, I was able to finish it!
I begin this post with a slideshow of my autumn leaf paintings paired with the piano clips for my song “Autumn Recollections,” which is one of the songs included in this medley.
Music From My Heart – Magical Piano is comprised of ten of my original songs. For each one, Devin (my piano arranger), and I have collaborated to create two different solo piano clips. One is more creative and the other one is faithful to my song’s melody. When both are combined together, I have named the resulting track “Magical Piano.”
