Cute and fuzzy and flat, for easy shipping

So, this is the word part.

This is a blog, so there's really no getting out of the word part.

As much as I would like to skip the word part altogether tonight, it is necessary for context.  With the wordishly presented context, the listener can be prepared for the musical moment to come.  Without the words, and the context they give, there could be some amount of mental or emotional jarring if one were to jump right into the musical piece unprepared.  

That said, I wanted to improvise a bit on the piano tonight.  Early in college one of my favorite things was to sit in a practice room for a couple of hours and play through branches of ideas on the piano.  I improvised a bit with piano and synth, and then added a couple more layers, including percussion on a guitar body.  Don't be fooled by the name, this is original, even though there's a Mozart aria from the Magic Flute by the same name ("Klage des derjenige K├Ątzchen zerquetscht").

  1. Dude. That. was. epic. I really like that one!! I love how the synth sounds like a cat meowing! I also like how the piano goes from a very classical air to a bit of a jazzyness. Thanks for the music bro!

  2. kitty crusher. sigh. I agree with the mimi, this is a particularly good bit.
