The need of Joy (“Sono Dio” Series, no.3) – PianoTweet no. 115 (replay)


It’s like water, food, light, night and day, sleep…
Needed by the human body to survive.

The human spirit lives in the human body, tight and tied together;
one can not exist without the other.

Joy always has to be on the human menu.
Joy is food for our souls.
No Grief without Joy.
Joy is needed to get wise, needed to grow.
Joy is like fuel for the human engine.

Let’s celebrate Joy this Day!

Little Easter Sleep (“Sono Dio” Series no.2) – PianoTweet no. 114 (replay)

(text written April 24th 2011)

In our “Western Civilisation” most people are busy people.
Work, family, business, traffic, tons of information:
our days are full days.
For many of us it means less opportunities to rest.

With the music of PianoTweets you can take a little pause, a small break.
For a moment no pressure, no needs, just listen and breathe….

The Easter Days can make you consider to relax more in life.
Take more moments off, no more rush hours for a while.

This 2nd piece in the “Sono Dio” Series can help you
to realise what’s the meaning of this Series’ title “I am God”.

You can be God, your own God.

Finally some musical information before you close your eyes for half a minute:
This PianoTweet is written in G major,
the next key after yesterday’s C major piece.
Soon I’ll explain more about the key system of this brand new Series.

C major Jubilation (“Sono Dio” Series no.1) – PianoTweet no. 113 (replay)

(text written on April 23rd 2011)

Some years ago someone looked me straight into the eyes and said:
“Sono Dio…”

I’ll never forget those simple words (spoken in Italian), meaning:
“I am God…”

Which impressed me deeply and which is true.
I understood the importance of these words.

We all can say: “Sono Dio”.
We are all part of a big system that makes Life what Life is.
That makes the Universe being the Universe.
The Universe is God, God is the Universe, we are the Universe.
It’s in us and it’s all around us.

Today PianoTweets starts the new Series “Sono Dio”!
Which is based on the musical universe of 24 modes.
The next 24 days all 24 keys (modes) are passing by.
The tonal musical system is based upon 12 basic keys:
And these 12 keys appear in a Major key as well as a Minor key.
So, 12 times 2 = 24.

We’ll start today, right from the starting point: C major.
And let’s also start with a Jubilation about the existing Universes!

Voyage through Umbria – PianoTweet no. 112 (replay)

Some of you, my dear listeners and followers,
know that I lived in Italy for almost three years.
Near a small but very beautiful town called Todi,
situated in the region Umbria in Central Italy.

Especially in spring my thoughts and emotions go back to that period.
Being my favorite season already, spring impressed me deeply.
Probably caused by it’s explosive character in creating new life.

I know the region Umbria rather well;
I travelled down from north to south and up again,
visited hidden villages, ancient towns, hills, even the mountains.
Both touristic sites and the unknown places.

Very significant for the area is the Tiber,
the famous river streaming to the southwest
and the Apennine Mountains rising up in the eastern part…

During my stay I composed a Cd with musical impressions,
“Umbria Impressioni”;
music inspired by one of the most lovely parts of Italy.

Umbria means a lot more to me.

There’s a particular site along the river Tiber, near a town called Orvieto,
that almost literally pulled me away from Holland down to Italy.
During a 2 weeks holiday I easily found it back.
In a split second I knew for sure I had lived there before –
during Another Life, about 2000 years ago.

Returning to that site, it felt like coming home.
Although there isn’t any possibility for a living right now.
I knew that place extremely well…
and I felt completely happy.

Growing Omnidirectional (B flat minor Series, no.7) – PianoTweet no. 108 (replay)

Next one of the B flat minor Series,
right after Series no. 6!

Of course, it’s no coincidence.
Like I’m convinced coincidence doesn’t exist.

This Series can grow like everything grows;
in any direction and in all directions.
That’s the meaning of Omni:

It’s my wish to grow in any direction,
that I can grow all the way around.
I mean, not in physical weight and volume :-)

So, today starts with an Omniwish!

Just one in a Row (B flat minor Series, no.6) – PianoTweet no. 107 (replay)

(text written on April 17th 2011)

After some days of thorough reflection about
what’s happening around us,
today’s music is a new one
in a row that started many weeks ago.

There are listeners that remember
previous PianoTweets being part of “the B flat minor Series”.
The B flat minor key is one of my favorite keys.

During the months of February and March (2011)
I published the first 5 of this series.
You can find them following these links:

no. 1 “Harmless”
no. 2 “So Fragile”
no. 3 “Limited”
no. 4 “The Strength of Simplicity”
no. 5 “Highlighted”

Some of these were compiled in a YouTube video.

Today it’s the next one in this series
that I already now do love so much…
for sure not the last one…!

Could this be true? – PianoTweet no. 110 (replay)

(text written on April 20th 2011)

There’s always a BIG question.
Deep inside me.

Since my childhood, maybe a little bit later.
When I started making music.

When making music during those years,
I sometimes recorded it on a small cassette deck.
And the question was there.

Almost immediately.

Later on, the years were passing by,
I still recorded my music,
the equipment got better and better,
it went from analog to digital technology.
And the question was still there.

I asked myself and
I still always ask:

Is this music recorded or played
at the same moment anywhere else –

Could this be True?
Why couldn’t this be True?
