It's time to relax, put your feet up and enjoy the quiescence of a peaceful evening.

From my Album "PIANO"

The piano lines are so intimate, with such delicate rubato. Do you record live with a mic, or through a synth and midi? Either way, bravo good sir!

MarkySpark responds:

Hi Ryan, I have my Yamaha Porta Grand connected to PC and just record on Adobe Audition 3.


Slow piano I have always found relaxing. It is nice to listen to when you have a lot going on in life and need something to slow things down and bring it to a manageable point. Keep up the great work!

MarkySpark responds:

Thanks for the review. Yes, sometimes we need music to wind down.

The Life of A Coconut

A small coconut falls from a tree, tumbles down a tangle of moss and vines, and splashes into a small stream below. It gently turns through the stream, tumbling down pebbles and rushing down miniature waterfalls. It chases bugs as they scatter away from its grasp. It stops against a rock, and sits as the water cools off its body, texturizing its skin. It sleeps.

A small animal hops over to the stream, and takes a fresh lick at its surface, causing the coconut to topple over the rock, and continue down the stream below. Hours pass as it floats along the forest, unnoticed by anything or anyone. The stream turns into a small river, and it rushes underneath the current, gliding against its fish. It bobbles in and out of the water, and shoots out into the ocean.

It makes its way through waves, until it reaches a beach. A man walking along it notices the seed, and picks it up to examine it. He smiles, and puts it inside his backpack. The coconut travels inside the cozy dark until the man reaches inside to grab him once more. The coconut sits upon a shelf. People pass by and see it, pointing at it with awe. It is large, and one of the best that many have ever seen.

A small boy comes up to the shelf, and gives the man some coins. The man shakes his hand, and the boy runs off in excitement with his new friend. He sits down upon the sand, building sandcastles for the coconut. The tide washes in, and takes his prize by surprise. It washes into the ocean, and disappears into the distance.


Im not much of a piano person so i guess its a bit bias but it really was relaxing . i agree. One thing i didnt like was how low it was at times id have to turn up the volume then have to turn it down. Maybe its just me. But its def a great piece.
piano person or not this def. relaxes you

MarkySpark responds:

I hope I can convert you to be a piano person. It's a beautiful instrument. Thanks for taking time to listen.
