The Music 50.

Sacrifice - The Piano. Michael Nyman.

The Piano. A beautiful movie. The music is a character itself... being described "like a mood that passes through you... a sound that creeps into you." There are many things that get into your cracks without warn. Best to let them sometimes. A life without these things would not be worth living. Music happens to be one of them. Beethoven lost his sense of hearing. It is noted that he sawed off the legs of the piano and placed it directly on the floor to feel its vibrations, in an attempt to assist with his composing & playing.

This is a favorite score of mine and I distinctly recall that this was up before... quite a while ago. Needless to say, this is related to what comes next. Something reminded me of this particular 'story' I'd kept back. At this moment and for most of the last twelve hours... I'm regrouping this. Odd turn there may be enough material to produce two additional pieces. Will explain more later... m.
