Golden Age of Piano

Piano Musings

The piano–such a versatile instrument.  Listen to anything from a Bach Invention to the latest Coldplay album and you’ll hear it.  Lift up it’s lid and it never ceases to amaze. Strings of grand proportion delicately wound from thick to thin, ready to be plucked, modified or played conventionally with keys connected to a simple felt hammer striking ever so precisely to provide us with an array of massive resonating overtones.  And when it sits quietly, the anticipation of it’s next sound makes it seem as if it has taken on an almost human persona……

Volume 1

Volume 1

The Acoustic Cafe Series is available at www.summitsongs.com and also on iTunes and cdfreedom.com

This acoustic set is a collection of intimate coffee house songs.   We like to think of the collection as a pairing similar to that of blue jeans and coffee, or wine with candlelight, maybe hot chocolate on a cold and windy day.   Simple and inviting….

Three artists are on the collection: Bron Hogan, Judith de los Santos and Justin Sheehy.  Find out more about them and listen to the collection at www.summitsongs.com.

Excerpt of lyrics from ” Angels All Around Her” performed by Bron Hogan

” She’s got angels all around her, colored lights appear from nowhere Problems seem to solve themselves, clouds form around the skyline everywhere With such beauty and grace, like a wrap around her delicate face Angels all around her, she just looks above, and the rest is love….” (© Summit Songs Music Group LLC)

And the band plays on...

If you ever have some walking, train or bus time and want a good read:  ”MusicCage/ Cage Muses on Word Art Music.”

Ponder his description of a person holding a fork and how we either perceive the subject as the fork with the person as the background or the person as the subject with the fork as part of the landscape.   Maybe it depends on what time you get up in the morning and whether you have studied 5.1 surround sound.   On that subject, I think someone in the world may be on the brink of discovering an amazing new concept in the field of multimedia— well beyond gaming.    Until next time…

Happy Holidays

Changing times all around us.  During this holiday season, may you find an abundance of music to wrap yourself around for the moment–music to dance to, music to rest and refresh yourself, music to expand and expound upon; so that you may embrace the coming year with peace, wonder and joy. Happy Holidays, Summit Songs

Wish Lists

Posted in Ponderings | No Comments »

Do you ever wonder about the personal wish lists of people who have already accomplished so much in life?  Even if  a most apparent wish hasn’t arrived, we all keep working toward our goals.  Ponder this:  would it be possible for each of us to help with another’s wish list? Think of what the world could be. There are people in this world with the capabilities to help with another’s wish list in the blink of eye, without having to put forth very much effort. So, wherever you are on the musical career ladder, or the ladder of life, consider helping with someone else’s wish list. I’m off to do that right now. Until next time….
