Spotted: Mark W Griffiths – Returning

Spotted: Mark W Griffiths – Returning

Today I’m introducing you to the track Returning by the British composer and piano player Mark W Griffiths. Mark was taught to play the piano by his father, William Griffiths, by the age of seven.

I found real fulfilment in chords and beautiful melodies, something that continues to inspire me today.  I studied music at university where I was taught to compose in a more ‘modern’ style! This didn’t sit well with my personal ideals!

The track Returning was released as a single on the 16th of April, 2021.

Tell us something about your track Returning!
The solo piano piece ‘Returning’ is written to create a sense of the mood felt on returning to a warm and welcoming place of comfort. The chords are deliberately rich to create the feeling of warmth, whilst the sustained melody deliberately sits languishing in that secure haven.  The transition section moves away from the familiar and welcoming surroundings. However, this only serves to magnify the effect of the ‘returning’ in the final section.

Thank you very much for this Mark!
