The Descent

   This first song I chose is called "The Descent" by Michele Mclaughlin and it comes from her album Out of the Darkness. I feel that coming out of my own "Descent," it would be only appropriate to convey it through my own interpretation of playing the piano. I have always been a firm believer that the simple things brew complexities and this song delivers just in that manner. Simple combinations of broken cords and octaves form this beautifully flowing song. I apologize in advance about the raw recording but I promise as I continue to garner support I'll invest in better recording equipment and software. Until then enjoy the raw.


PS. I am finicky about sounds so if you listen to it half volume down its a slightly better sound =)


  1. Sounds awesome, keep it coming! I was at Fry's just a couple weeks back looking at some pretty slick instrument recording microphones, but anything above entry level looks to be ~$100. Kind of a bummer, as I'm looking for one myself.

  2. I love this song. I've never heard you play it before. I enjoy seeing the piano open while you play. It emphasizes to me, how talented you are seeing each key move.
