What She Said

Here's a little JaZz PiANo Sunshine to inJOY. After all, Spring is Coming soon! The tune was born of "What She Said". But don't tell anyone, O.K. ;) I am totally delighted that over 88,000 + Sound-Clouders have inJoyed this tune over the past months. :-D And Wow... this past week or so has been absolutely Unprecedented in my world, (with over 55,000 having a listen in the past 2 weeks)! :)) An Improv like this puts huge sMILEs in my heart. Thank you to everyone who has listened, reposted, and inJOYed! For more of my JazZ Piano pieces go to https://soundcloud.com/gary-courtland-miles/sets/gary-miles-live-chilled-piano In-deed. On June 27th 2016 my dear friend SAM 'the man' PROCK @art-of-nonsense has made it the lead off tune in his Jazz It Up -Life is SaX Playlist (https://soundcloud.com/art-of-nonsense/sets/life-sax-feeling-funking-blues-silent-zen ) and now, who knows how far and wide it will go. Thanx a milion Sam! :-D Here's what one of you listeners said.... " This tune reflects the best elements of jazz - flowing sounds from improvisation - the search through music for greater connection - a communication never quite the same twice. There is a give and take between artist & listener that makes the human condition universal and dynamic. The musicianship makes it all the more personal. To me, your tune embraces all that. " Wow! Thank you Harry @Hverheij ! (I'll include that in the liner notes for my upcoming album. :) Again peeps... Many Many Thanks to each and all for listening, appreciating, commenting, Re-Posting, and 'Sharing the JoY'. Cheers Always! :)) ~ Gary Improvised by Gary Courtland-Miles All Rights Reserved (c)Vibrational Arc Music 2016

What We Said

This tune is about 'What We've Said'... to ourselves, and others whilst to-ing and fro-ing in this ol' world, looked at with self-deprecating humour. ;) I guess this Also includes, what we've eXpressed non-verbally in the moment... via Thought, Feeling, or over those Invisible Cords of Connection we share with friends and loved ones around the globe. Cuz yes in-deed, We Are ALL Connected. :)) That said... here's my latest 'Sound Seed' folks. In fact, it's a simple little Piano Improv with some island friends backing me up with Guitar and Bass a few days back. Stretch out...and inJOY!

Chilled Piano with Spiced Rubato

Just a brief liner note here. I decided to let this Chilled Piano piece (with a dash Spiced Rubato*) flow on for a while.... in the hope that within the 7 minute 11 second improvisation you could easily relax...... and sink into the contemplative vibe i'm layin' out here. :) So yeah, unwind....... and let your mind 'n heart fill in the visuals, as you join me in my latest Tonal n Rhythmic adventure. :-D Warmest Regards, ~ Gary *One interpretation of the musical term, 'Rubato', means.... 'Stolen Time'.... ;) This, the first of my 2017 improvisations is (c)and performed by Gary Courtland-Miles Thank you.

Cosmic Cycles

Let yourSelf go... i will be Good to your soul, and...to your Ears... i promise. let your Consciousness Resonate with this Tone Poem, my friends. For if it suggests anything, it is that 'There is Peace at Center, and Center is Everywhere. What you hear first in this composition represents the Cosmic Background Radiation even now remaining from the imagined Big Bang. (Indeed, these vibrational FingerPrints were theorized, and then revealed by C.O.B.E., NASA's..... CO(smic) B(ackground) E(xplorer) And this 'radiant energy' continues to resonate throughout this entire MultiVerse .... Yes...i know... "it all sounds kinda New Agey" ... and... perhaps these liner notes' could be so construed. But in this case, this music was born out of months of contemplation of a Huge life-manifested Zen Koan i came up against! :)) Hah... but what an opportunity to Compose through. ;) The Koan was " What is the Sound of Manifestation? What is the SOUND of the Process of The Stuff of Life - Arising ? As as it does, it dances, and sparks New manifestations of substance in this plane - and then dissolves back into 'the vacuum' out of which it arose. What could 'that' sound like? Hmmmm. Impossible, yet tantalising. No matter .. many have found that the peace they felt in resonating with whatever IT ultimately IS, is More than Enough to keep them totally interested. ;) If you find this composition relaxing and easy to flow with ... then i am more than happy. Peace... And by all means..... inJoy. :-D (c) 2015 Gary Courtland-Miles All Rights Reserved Pic: by The Hubble Space Telescope (NASA)

Autumn Winds

This little Autumn Improvisation came through while i watched the wind working it's magic as it swirled around the trees and meadows outside my studio window. What Amazing patterns of power and freedom it created; and how effortlessly, releasing everything within it's sway into an exquisite and random flow. InJoy the Fall, for Winter cometh. ;) Painting by Nickillus @ the Deviant Art website. http://nickillus.deviantart.com/

That Tune

Tonight a JazZBlues PiaNo iMPRoV w Bass n Drums took form out of a little musical meme thats been rolling round my soul for years. It's loosely based on an abstraction of a musical idea (or a part of one )that we've all heard in various popular Songs like - ' We've Got A Groovy Thing Going Baby ', 'Spoonful', and many others. But these musical memes are Definitely part of what i'd call the vocabulary of 'The Blues'. In any case... i Hope you inJoy it as much as i did as it Flowed through these Ten little Fingers. :) ~ Gary (c)2016 Gary Courtland-Miles

A Stringular Pleasure

As my love for Guitar that goes back a long ways.... my latest composition and arrangement is something i just had to try. Its kind of a Spanish Fusion... thanx to my passionate Iberian Muse. :)) I must tell you however... that I am NOT 'playing' the guitars 'in the usual sense'. In-deed, i've ventured 'out on a (virtual)string', so to speak. :)) However... it was a 'Stringular Pleasure' to lovingly place every note on my DAW using excellent samples of several 'actual' acoustic guitars. ;) I hope you will inJoy.

Here my friends is a recent Piano Improv in which i seek to describe a life-experience that elicited feelings more intense than happiness, or even Joy; like the inexplicable emotions felt at the birth of one's first child.

Heart of Hope

May 'the Heart of Hope' beat forever within us. For to become overweeningly cynical is to loose faith in Life itSelf, cutting ourselves off from its renewing Pulse and Awesome Creativity! Even in the darkest times, there is always a Silver Lining; always someone, somewhere, who in response to their inner Integrity has the courage, creativity, and strength of character to let their 'better angel' win through that the Light might shine and overwhelm the darkness. So i ask you my friends... why not let that someone be us? ;) Yeah... let's have Faith in the wellspring of human decency, even if we imagine that it has been irretrievably lost in the world of 2016. I feel that As Creatives, having particularly sensitive and keen Eyes and Ears, it behooves us to take the High Road. Always.......... Furthermore, living out of a Heart of Hope and compassion lets our Humanity shine through the gathering clouds of despair and opens the way to a brighter future for all. And the 'specifics' of how this will manifest, is up to each of us! ~ Anomon 'Heart of Hope', an Improvisation on Piano (c)Gary Courtland-Miles November 8th 2016

Thoughts In The Night

Yes! i ask... "Who among us hasn't had 'Thoughts In The Night?" Yeah... you know... those Deep and Wide ranging ones. The kind that all who dare to ask 'the Big Questions' entertain. :-D The ones that fill us with Wonder, and sometimes even... Foreboding. Like... Wazzup? Who am I? Is there a Purpose ? Am I here to Give, to Get, or just to make do? and more.... or perhaps more simply... WTF... what did i do to get myself into this? ;) Oh yeah... these are the kinda questions we've all pondered in the deep of the night at one time or another, right? :D And... in my eXperience, this is a Good Thing! if we go deep enough in our Self-Reflections... there ARE Answers! Yes! and they can help us set a 'moral compass' for ourselves. And luckily... They are within us! beyond 'book-learnin', beyond anyone else's power to answer. We are like 'Deep Wells' of living water. All we have to be willing to do is 'let it come out', 'let it nourish whatever environment we find ourselves in.' In any case, i'm writing this to give you something nutritious to read while listening! ;) :-D This little Piano Improvisation embodies my 'Thoughts In The Night'. i find... that as i meditate on such things as i play my Piano, it never lies to me. It helps me 'commune' with the Cosmos. ;) It best describes my approach to the instrument. And that's why i have called this Genre- 'Mystical Piano'. Anyway... as you listen.. (and please..put it on repeat) i hope you'll 'hear' some of your questions, and maybe an answer or two as well! ;) So, let the Questions...AND the Answers come! :D ~Gary this improvisational Piano flow is (c)2016 by Gary Courtland-Miles

Mysteres et Nuance

"Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters." And from that place let the mysteries and nuances within The Deep be revealed to all who seek... but do not covet. Ask only for Wisdom, and Understanding.... The Timeless Mysteries of Sound, Light, and Being call out our inner names and beckon us to draw near... to discern, intuit... to delight, and perhaps, to comprehend, not overly concerned 'to Possess'... for is it not Enough that this wondrous Universe which gives us Life offers the opportunity to Co-Create? ---------------------------------- This Music seeks to describe the indescribable Awe and Wonder of this Timeless Precession of Becoming... and.... to Celebrate the Mysteries of Sentience itSelf. May you inJoy

Cell Tones

This tune was inspired by the book 'Life Ascending' by evolutionary biologist Nick Lane of London College UK. I've read it 3 times and highly recommend it. It'll really Blow yer Mind, and get ya thinking. Very open ended, with very little dogma, with mysteries aplenty. Professor Lane invites us to actually participate in solving some of the deepest riddles of Life, from the microscopic to the macrocosmic. And yes.. the incredibly intelligent design inherent throughout the entire spectrum of Creation reveals an overarching signature of beauty, practicality and wonder that is awesome to contemplate. photo: The Heart and Soul Nebula

Conjuring

As we move into the Future, it's a journey into the Unknown, even though we create what will likely unfold (by reason of our attitudes and actions in every moment). So yes, we are Creators! Conjurers even! Really, in effect, we are trying 'work our magic' in Time and Space, hoping to defy the odds! ;) But there's an easier way. I say, that if we 'Let Go' and Harmonize with our Integrity, and express our delight in this, that All will be Well. I'd even wager that in so doing... we'd co-create a new and undreamt of world! So... Here's to continuing on into a place we haven't yet spent much time in! Onwards and Upwards in the Ascending Spiral of Life. :) Cheers! ~ Anomon Composed Arranged and Realized by Gary Courtland-Miles (c) 2016 Image : A Gamma-Ray Burst "Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are flashes of gamma rays from extremely energetic explosions.

20. The Way Of Tao

The Way Of Tao

This 'Mystical Piano' improv seeks to represent a sense of The Way of Tao ; like the unfolding Seasons and Cycles of Life as it ebbs, flows, gives birth, and diminishes again only to repeat again.... Yes... the fingers have a seemingly impossible task. However... as i often say, " it's all about the Flow... " Improvisation, being that it emerges and unfolds from Nowhere into the NowHere makes use of a few essential, intuitive and resonant elements. This creative current comes forth according to simple natural laws of flow and harmony, I feel that Improvisation illustrates The Way of Tao beautifully. It remains my very favorite way of eXpressing mySelf. And really, we all do it in varying degrees. :) In-deed...as one Lets Go to the Creative principles of Initiation, Response, Momentum, Release, and Flow, what emerges may well Harmonize easily with Tao and thus increase it. Given of course....that it unfolds naturally, and easily, without 'trying'. I often compare it to 'falling off a log'. :)) The Initial impetus or spark, embodies 'The Creative' bright (Yang) aspect... and together with 'The Responsive', receptive (Yin)aspect, they complement each other and become Something wholly different in ONENESS. TAO, or The Flow of Life also unfolds in this manner. it's a matter of Balance, and Flow......... (Much as the Positive (+) and the Negative (-) aspects of electrical forces make possible the flow or Current of what we call Electricity.) Letting Life's essences flow through us clearly, one eXperiences Peace, Harmony, Growth, and a Quiet Joy that easily and continuously Creates an Atmosphere in which Something wholly New can manifest. And beyond all of the above.... simply inJoy the piano as it gives Voice to the Music, and ReLaX......... Best Wishes and Kindest Regards, ~ Gary (c)2016 True Tone Music
