It's been 4 months since I started Patreon, and I've written/composed more than 30 posts for my patrons. I'm loving the experience - allowing it to become whatever it will be, to grow as I grow, to manage it intuitively, is so liberating. Although I've been playing piano pieces each month for the collective, I haven't been recording them as mp3's. Last night I did the first recording as the full moon shone bright, and I've just released it for my patrons.
The concept is that I sit at the piano on each full moon and record an intuitive piece that can be downloaded and add to your playlist to listen to while you create or go about your daily ways. It is one of the ways I will connect with everyone on Patreon, as a collective - they inspire my piano compositions, which I then give back to empower their own creative processing.
The reason I choose the moon and not a date or season is that the moon- as well as the earth and sun - is what connects us all, no matter what part of the world we live in, what season or day of the week it is, what stage of life we are in, what culture or religion we are from, or what beliefs we currently hold and act upon. And the reason I choose to play on the full moon is because again, no matter what are the above circumstances of each of our lives, it signifies the illumination of creation and the release of ideas. It's a powerful time of the cycle. I am looking forward to sharing more of this soon in my other works.
So these pieces as you'll have already realised from my past compositions, are rhythmic. They do not have a beginning, middle and end, they are cyclic, and there will always be imperfections. I write more about my process of these on my latest Patreon post. This is my process - it's simple and raw, so that the soul of each rhythm remains powerful.
I made this video with the composition I just recorded, along with photographs I took while on a bushwalk with Laly yesterday. There was much leaf touching & tree hugging.
