Reflection by Colton J. Provias
The simplest of all concepts are quite often the most powerful. Memories are merely a concept of our minds but they shape the way we live. And through a simple reflection of these memories, a life can be changed in its entirety.
I recently wrote this small piece using the Steinway Basic library. I usually use my MIDI Controller to figure out themes, chords, and etc. for the piece and then input them by hand into the score. For this piece, I wanted to add on an extra level of emotion to the piece so I decided to play the entire work in. I apologize in advance for my poor piano skills.
Only the theme in the piano part was pre-planned. Everything else was improved on the spot. I also decided to record each part only once, even though it meant keeping the mistakes intact. The goal was to create an image as to if I was playing this piece live (assuming I had more hands to handle the glockenspiel, triangle, and electric guitar too).
