What Good is a Mind?

00:00 / 03:16

I've been playing the piano for roughly eight years and compose cinematic/orchestral/soundscape music. I often collaborate with other musicians and enjoy playing music live - especially jazz. I also write and create visual art.

The music I'm interested in writing and composing blends the styles of cinema and film scores, ambience, and sometimes the tones of 1930's-40's jazz and progressive rock.

What Good is a Mind is a piece that I've written to experiment with moving through different modes of chord progressions and harmonics. The piece itself uses a relatively standard chord progression to initiate the first phrases, then moves into more interesting chord runs and a melody line that aims to make the piece more contemplative and musically beautiful. The chords are fleshed out throughout the melody and various progressions to give each chord a whole and melodic tone. I hope you enjoy!
