What goes on in the Middle East touches me deeply.
I was raised with some knowledge and consciousness about the Middle East.
Through the Bible, the Koran and the impressive history of the area.
This PianoTweet is called “Middle East Desert”.
Because so much is happening over there these days.
An area that’s pressumed
dead, dumb, deaf and blind,
pressumed by some fools, some low hearted people.
They really don’t know what they’re talking about.
They don’t understand anything about deserts.
The Desert keeps treasures, secrets and history.
It keeps life and love deep inside.
Let’s support the people that own the Desert.
Those people fighting for their Freedom, their Lives.
The “pedal tone” in this PianoTweet
– the repeatedly played bass note –
stands for this enormous fight, this insisting desire to be Free.
The “big chords” express the richness of history of the Middle East.
It’s great, knowing that the Middle East is part of our world.
