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.
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.
Today the past sounds again, but now literally.
I recorded the original of this piece in the late 80’s.
Duration 7 mins 17 secs.
The reason for choosing this title is simple:
it was the best and the most beautiful grand piano I ever played on.
A real Bösendorfer Concert Grand! Length: 2.90 m.
At the bass side extra keys were situated:
black painted and extended to an extra low C key.
Maybe the best description for the instrument is:
I composed this music for a theatral production.
During the last minutes of this performance
the spectators were watching one of the actresses,
playing she was dying
at the end of the performance.
Like future tells us:
The real best has yet to come.
One of my favorite issues and insights.
Look at a subject.
The viewing angle is decisive.
Change it, and the subject will change along with it.
Like a color, changing in sunshine and changing in darkness.
The main, equal notes above a basic “murmuring”,
that’s my way to interpret “Perspectives” today.
In D major.
Probably tomorrow I would play it
from another perspective,
in a different way.
Enjoy your day, starting with this piece from @PianoTweets!
