[Music] Lament

About a month ago, I was playing around on the piano, and I came up with a fragment of melody that I couldn’t get out of my head. I played with it, twisting it around, pushing it in different directions, seeing what I could do with it. Ultimately, I turned it into a full piece of music, and this is the result.

Like this track? Buy it at thesixtyone, and help feed an impoverished (well, not really) programmer.

You can also listen to one of the (early) improvisations I played on this theme by downloading the recording I made on my phone here.

    Very nice Barry! I particularly like the flat notes towards the end. Don’t know what the proper name for them is, but they sound really good!

    BTW: Is it possible to put a link in to download the mp3 of this? I got it by trawling the source, but a nice, out in the open, “download this now” link would be great!

      @Nicholas: Well, it’s available for purchase at thesixtyone, so making it freely downloadable would defeat that. 😛

      However, seeing as you’re family and all, I’ll email you links when I release new tracks. 🙂
