February Facebook Fast

Cover

So how about it? Are you up to the challenge? For one month—specifically, through the month of February, no Facebook. Logoff, and other than websites that use Facebook to login, No logging back in until March. It’s just for a month—and the shortest month at that.

I’m going to do it. And just so you know, I love Facebook. I have nothing against it. Obviously, like any potentially good thing, it can become a serious time-waster, but it’s a great way to keep in contact with friends and family.

This is just for the challenge of it, really. Are you with me? Think you can do it? Eh? Eh? When your done, come back and tell us how it went, what you learned, what you missed, and all the many things you got done in February 🙂

Oh, and you’re welcome to steal the image above if you want to make it your cover photo so your FB friends know where you went.

The Book Mormon Set to Music: 1 Nephi 1

I thought it might be fun to set music to the Book of Mormon by playing the piano while listening to a recorded reading of it. The tune was improvised on the spot so I could have the mood change with the words. It starts out a little cheesy, but overall  I think it worked okay. Let me know what you think!

Unfinished Piece: Thoughts?

Unfinished Piece

I’d like to put another instrument or two in this piece, but I haven’t decided what yet. It’s not named yet, and I’ve got some ideas – but I’d be glad to hear your suggestions!

What does it need? What do you like/dislike about it? Tell me what you think!

Christmas CD: Figure Eights and Slipscapades

Slipscapades SAMPLE

Since it’s fully blizzarding today (in late May!), I thought I’d post a sample of a fun little original piece I’m putting on the Christmas CD called Figure Eights and Slipscapades. I think you’ll see why I call it that when you listen it. It’s a fun little piano duet, and it makes me think of an ice-skating couple. Obviously, they aren’t perfect at skating, and though they have some beautiful synchronized moments, they also have a few slips.

Anyway, Enjoy!

Chas
