The Story Behind "Thorns"
This is one of my experimental piano/orchestrated tracks with more of a soulful sorrow that moves to a bit of brightness toward the end.
As much as they hurt, the thorns in my life remind me that I am still feeling.

Life Story Music by Taurus M. ames
I recorded this as a "piano freestyle" (piano improvisation), unrehearsed.
This is a method that I use to teach myself how to play piano. I play by ear and I am able to construct basic chords, but I am not able to play chords and melodies at the same time...yet.
The piano freestyle forces me to come up with "melodic sentences" on-the-fly. I find that I am not thinking so much about what note to play on the keyboard. Instead, I'm thinking music "phrases" or riffs comprised of many notes. I can't fully explain how this works, but I think it's like talking. i don't think about the individual letters that make up the words i say, I think about the sentences and just say the words.
I am surprised by what I come up with using this piano freestyle method. The more I use this method, the longer the "melodic sentences" become and the fewer mistakes i make.
