Background Music

Posted by me on Sunday, the 24th day of June, anno domini 2007 at 12:21 AM, local time.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: as we go through life, we each should have a piano player following us around with a huge piano playing wonderful piano music. I’ve always enjoyed piano music, and I think it would make great background music. I am of the opinion that piano music is all that is sufficient and necessary to completely express the entire range of human emotion and mood.

Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy other instrumentation as well, and would not happily do without a full orchestra for many wonderful pieces of music, but a piano’s music is so simple, elegant, beautiful, and yet still capable of such subtlety and richness that if I had to choose a single instrument to follow me around, it must be the piano. As it is, I often have piano music playing in the background anyway, but to have a real piano playing the music is so much better.

Now, I just have to find a piano player…

    I have to agree….you should learn! I’d be happy to teach you what I could, and I’m sure Darcy would too! you would pick it up quite quickly.

    Thanks guys, and I probably should learn sometime. But, thats not exactly what I had in mind. You see, optimally, the piano would be playing in the background as I go about my daily life: As I’m reading, as I’m eating, while I am at work, while I’m taking a walk, playing softball, at the bar, at the library, shopping at the grocery store, etc, etc.

    While I do think learning to play the piano would be fun, if I were providing the background music, I wouldn’t be able to live and have background music at the same time.
    I guess I just need to have my ipod full of piano music and bring it more places than I currently do.
