Piano Meditations Podcast

Welcome to Piano Meditations Podcast by Blake Rowe. For the past three years (with occasional breaks), Wednesday nights have been devoted to creating freely improvised music for about 45 minutes. Known melodies may come to mind and may be explored, but the pieces are primarily “spontaneously composed”. The music tends to follow an arc from introspective to energetic and back again. There are currently 131 unique episodes. New episodes will either be new music or will be clearly labeled as a repost.

Episode 50, 10-17-18

October 17th, 2018

50th episode! We had some new folks tonight. It's an interesting process just allowing the music to unfold the way it wants to without worrying whether I'm keeping listeners engaged. At some point it could become too self-indulgent, I guess, but so far people seem to stay with it. The last piece was very slow, then went into an atonal contrapuntal frenzy before returning to slow, simple chords. While it was happening I began to wonder if it was maybe becoming a little boring, but after it was over the consensus was that it still held their attention.
