I learned piano on my own. By banging on pianos I managed to deduce some of their patterns, decipher some of their encrypted beauty.
Much of what i created, I discovered later through a smattering of theory, was in minor keys - particularly A-minor and F#-minor - with many of the bass lines formed as simple triads. Minor keys are the musical incarnation of dark romance, of passion and abandon.
This week i started playing piano again. I picked up the sheet music for Tiersen's Valse d'Amelie (mp3 file), which seems to be well within my range.
