I’ll tell you a part of my thoughts: being thoughtful – “pensieroso”…
The reason to name this track in Italian is simple. I lived there for almost three years. It was very moving and impressive.
Probably, Italian is the most beautiful language in the world. Italy probably is the most beautiful country in Europe. So they say.
It’s a complicated country. People aren’t simple over there. They are beautiful, like all people. They are difficult, too.
While composing this piece, my thoughts were in Italy. And thoughts give appearance, give “body” to feelings. Or is it the opposite way?
Probably, you, my listeners are gonna hear more of my musical thoughts in Italian, here at PianoTweets.
There’s melancholy, theatre, optimism, passion, anger, frustration, adoration, joy, history, music.
Thoughts are like human beings. Reflective. Constructive. Creative.
You name it. I played it.
This recording was made with a very free mind. I actually felt so free that the audio signal of the piano was recorded a little too loud.
It’s a nice analogy with real life.
With a free mind someone might cause distortion. But watt is distortion? (Ah, I see a distorted word over there…!)
Distortion (also) means a deformation of a pattern.
But sometimes it’s really healthy to get rid of a pattern.
A pattern can feel like a prison.
Me, like a Prisoner in disguise. Oh no…!
So go and distort – if you wanna feel free!
This distorted piece was written with the beauty of the harmonic patterns of B minor.
Enjoy, with a free mind, this track of @PianoTweets!
The original was written in may last year,
and taken from the album “Life’s Thumbnails”.
It’s inspired on peoples movements in the shopping centre of the city.
Illustrating the vast and cloudy crowds: slowly, almost lazy moving, walking, talking, watching, eating, drinking, puzzling.
Puzzling on what piece of material is next to be taken, to be consumed, to have.
I observe the crowds, instead of watching into the shops, wondering when they get tired. At the same time, it’s lively, cosy, full of energy and social engagement.
In this piece, written in E flat major, I use rather insisting some of my favorite intervals: the minor and major 2nd. Two notes very near to each other, resulting in those typical tight chords.
Please, let me Dream..! Coz’ it gives me Power, the Power to create, to wake up the Sources, it makes me Fly…!
And what’s the buzz about the weekend? Can’t we dream all day, all week, all year?
Our dreams are our engine, our fuel, our navigation source…
Let Me dream!
Let Me dream of Paradise!
Let me dream of the Stars I gonna visit!
Let me dream of the Eternal I gonna meet one day…
And in the meantime, while Dreaming:
Sometimes I read about people’s dreams in my timeline.
For me as a human being, Dreaming is one of the most beautiful and intense actions of the brain.
It happens that I dream of orange bombs with long and misty tails, falling from a clear and deep blue sky. Almost once in a month my dream is the most wonderful thing I know: my arms function like real wings!
I fly anywhere I want to fly to, high above woods and fields, cities and houses and… it’s so easy! Of course I’ve had my bad dreams too, dear listeners.
In real lifetime, when awake, I dream a lot too. Light ones and heavy ones. It’s all happening in my brains. And it causes always deep feelings.
So, this weekend, it’s Dream Weekend. Today you hear a bit of my dreams: part 1. Tomorrow it’s up to part 2. There are more parts to come….
Just simply as the key of this piece is, C Major. No flats nor sharps. Just the basic one, the first one, the strongest.
During my stay in Italy I performed this piece in many variations. As a “pianobar” piano player. Especially in a grand hotel, when I played during sunday morning’s breakfast. Big deal.
I want every follower of this great and continuing project to enjoy a good Friday; even a better Friday!
Because getting up early and starting your day with a #PianoTweet; there’s nothing like that…
