The Piano Notebook

I’m trying something new. The Piano Notebook is a series of pieces I’m writing and posting to Soundcloud. Every week or so I’m putting up a new piano piece.

Why?

Two reasons:

  1. I have a lot of musical ideas. Hardly any of them make it out the door, because I lack the time to develop them all. Not all of them are suitable for development. Here, with less constraint on length, style, or material, and more constraint on orchestration (just piano), I can put some of these ideas out there for you to hear.
  2. I currently have two album projects in the works – it can never be simple, linear, and straightforward, right? The Dominium Project is classical sacred music taken to another level, and Music for Sanctuary is music that is inspired by the work my wife is doing in her design firm and on her blog about creating spaces with deeper meaning. This is a great way to put some of the themes out there in a simple form while I’m working on the more complex arrangements.

Currently there are two pieces up, and I’m almost done with the third. I invite you to listen, comment, and share them. I’d be honored.

 

UPDATE: Here’s the third piece – Equinox:

Yours,

Philip
