I hope you are staying safe and continue feeling well.
This Mindfulness Playlist Week 7 is rather unusual.
It has two recordings of some of the most popular classics, which I recorded a while ago on my handheld recorder at home. I like them a lot, and thought I could share them with you: Bach: Prelude in C Major from Book 1 of The Well-Tempered Clavier and Beethoven: First Movement from the Moonlight Sonata.
I also included some of my live improvisations which were recorded on the same Zoom handheld recorder a few years ago and which, due to lockdown, I had the time to re-discover.
The playlist includes one commercially released piece which I composed & recorded for Universal Production Music ‘Perpetual State’. You will notice a big difference in the recording quality.
And yet, as an artist, I sometimes prefer raw recordings to the perfectly produced commercial recordings which are now so favoured by our industry. My heart always beats harder when I listen to the recordings of old masters like Glenn Gould, Myra Hess, Clara Haskil to name just a few. Something in a raw, slightly unpolished, sound speaks more to my heart.
Hence I am presenting you this playlist, which is a far cry from commercially produced music, yet still has a capacity to convey and, maybe even transform. It is for you to decide which you prefer!
