Over the next few posts, I would like to give you samples of piano music from our recent, first recording sessions, in order of their appearance in the piece.
In the beginning is “Rain Sequence”. Here is an excerpt in which you hear the gentle, gradual layering of pianos one upon another, coming to represent “over a week of heavy rainfall” prior to the Aberfan Disaster:
Both Michael and I are deeply excited to continue recording, but we’ll need your support to do so. Everydonation is greatly appreciated.
Little did I know then that producing was one of his passions, too. In fact, last year I had a dream of the most fabulous rhythms being played during a recording session of one of my songs. Michael was producing. He was saying “Yes! Yes! Yes!” Even inside the dream, I knew of it’s providential message.
We’ll be working at his studio in Boston, Mix One.
