As many of my readers know, I am not only an author, but also a professional solo piano recording artist. The goal of each solo piano piece I write is reflected in this great quote from Dallas Willard:
Beauty is "good, made present to the senses."
I've been at work in the piano studio - writing new pieces for my second solo piano CD.
Here's a raw song idea I'm working on called, "Montana Front Range." The idea isn't fully-formed in my mind yet, but has already developed a distinct direction.
I was inspired by the beauty of mountains rising up from the valley in places like the Madison River Valley area of Montana, or Bozeman, or the Lamar Valley where herds of bison roam.
The song draft here isn't fully-formed yet or polished and mixed, but gives an idea of one of the songs that I'm writing for the new solo piano CD.
