Spotted: Dan Schrage – Just (Revisited)
Today I’m presenting you with the track Just (Revisited) by the composer and piano player Dan Schrage. Dan comes from the United States.
It had been a while since I had a piano in the house. I wrote a ton of music in my teens and twenties, spent a fair amount of time in music licensing for film and television (with some highlights), but I put the music thing on hold for a while and ended up selling my last piano (also my first) for lack of use when I bought and moved back into my old family home, not anticipating that I’d start writing again. Sacrilege, I know, but for what it’s worth, I came to my senses.
The track Just (revisited) was released as a single on the 15th of October, and will also be part of an upcoming EP.
Tell us something about your track Just (Revisited)!
This is a revisited version of an already popular track off Being in Time. It is a tribute to my late brother, and serves also as a kind of expression of my first experience with true loss, the grieving process, and ultimately trying to make sense out of this thing, which ironically feels so utterly unnatural. Each track was recorded in the living room of our old family Victorian. Needless to say, it holds a piano once again. It’s placed in the exact location of the upright I had growing up, and gets just as much use.
Thank you very much for sending this in Dan!
