Life is a long, wondrous and continuous introduction to yourself.

The act of creation — it leads me to unknown places. Only to make me realize that all was known, always. And yet, I live every day with the hope that I’ll explore, create and grow into someone new. Because what’s life if not a long, wondrous and continuous introduction to yourself.

In this journey, music lives by my side. I find melody in my writing, and a lot of writing in my melodies. Sometimes, I hear songs in the bubbles of boiling tamarind water. Or in the stroke of red paint over the canvas. Or in the giggles of a child after a good joke. Tunes find their way even into my boredom, curiosity and the thoughts in between. And a rhythm taps into my sorrow, so it can take the leap to laughter.

Such is music. Such is life — yours and mine.

Hello!

The Piano

www.themepiano.org The domain that points to the place where i am going to spend my weekend mornings. I had my catch up class today.  For the first time in my life, i played on a real piano (kawai) for my refresher lessons.

Yes, the feeling was nice.

We also discussed the history of western classical music and i must say, i liked knowing about the various eras which reflect on art, literature and music in every period.

  • Baroque (15-16 Century) - Bach & Vivaldi
  • Classical(16-17 Century) - Mozart & Beethoven
  • Romantic(1815-1910) - Schubert, Chopin
  • Impressionist (Modern)

As it turns out, the one large difference between Carnatic classical music and Western classical music is that english classical is strict and written while indian classical has grown by rote learning. So, while indian classical music is lot more open to changes,variations and versions within the boundaries of a ragam, western classical music is fixed.

Hence, i would be now learning to play by rules.
