When trying to paint with music, it’s fun to sit at the piano and explore emotional chords. If you were a dark storm moving in over the peaks of Devil’s Mountain in a fictional forest, what chords would you use to create that mood? Or, a butterfly flitting from flower to flower on an easy Sunday morning at the same mountainside? Or, a lost little girl sitting on a rock with bleeding feet, wanting to climb down the mountain but not knowing how?
These are the thoughts that flood my mind at times as I sit on the bench in front of my piano, letting my fingers aimlessly create moods. How delightful to explore the depths of human emotion in sound. Not so fun in real life.
