Today I’m introducing you to the track Connotations by the British composer and piano o player Barry Hudson-Taylor, which I have written about before in this Behind the piano post. Barry writes music for television and movies first hand, but also releases solo work, like this track!
The track was released as a single on the 9th of November, 2020.
Tell us something about your track Connotations!
‘Connotations’ came into fruition over lockdown after a somewhat turbulent year for myself and those closest to me. This musical vignette was just born out of my emotional experiences these past 12 months. Although this song was born from somewhat sad moments, the main piano melody is somewhat hopeful, intimate and sweet. I couldn’t really tell you exactly what the piece is meant to mean for the listener, but I hope that in by listening, each individual takes their own musical interpretation from it. It’s recorded using the felt pedal and positioning the microphones close to the hammers for an intimate feel.
Thank you Barry for this wonderful piece of music!
