This is the third of my youthful compositions. I almost didn’t share it because it’s full of mistakes and teenage pomposity. I probably had a very serious look on my face when I played it :)
Here’s another short song I wrote as a teenager. As with the previous song, I have no idea why I named this one what I did (I probably just thought it sounded cool).
Back When I Wrote Music
When I was a teenager I composed piano instrumentals. Every now and then I dreamed of making it as a musician, but really I only played for fun (I still do, but not nearly as often as I used to).
At one point I borrowed some recording equipment from my older brother and made a cassette tape containing several of my songs. That cassette miraculously survived nearly three decades of neglect before being converted to MP3.
Here’s one of the songs. I wish I could provide a thrilling back story for it, but I can’t remember what I was thinking about when I wrote it and I have no idea why I named it “Lost Prelude.” I do, however, remember that I wrote it in 1985 (the year I graduated high school), and it’s the only song I still remember how to play.
