Philip Glass Tribute - Piano, Bells, Organ, Cello

video upload by Tum Tum

"This is my Jamuary 2022 finale! This track was inspired by the Glass Piano by Spitfire audio which was sampled from the personal piano of Philip Glass. I tried to pay tribute in the contrasting duple/triple piano rhythms, the swelling 'pipe organ' (here played on my Alpha Juno synth), and the tuned percussion (here a kids bell set). I wish I could have performed the string part for the video, but I'm sans violin right now, so I used another Spitfire sample instrument. I didn't nail the moodiness of Glass but I'm feeling pretty triumphant about finishing Jamuary, so that was unavoidable.

At the beginning of January I had thought I might bow out mid-month but I'm glad I stuck it out for all 31 and I REALLY appreciate all of you who followed along. Definitely had fun and learned a lot, but it'll be nice to take a break ✌️
