I've been neglecting Google+ recently in favour of other networks... but this is the start of me paying it some well deserved attention again...!

I was recently inspired by the cherry blossom blowing from the tree in my garden... and here's the result.

It's solo piano and if you follow the link there's a free download too.

Enjoy! (and if you do please share the link with your friends!)

The window was open and the blossom blew in on a strong wind, and as I looked out into a whirlwind of pink blossom from the tree in my garden this piece came to me - not many things are as inspiring as nature herself. The image is called "cherry blossoms-sakura 1" and is by sei_k on sxc.hu (http://www.sxc.hu/photo/1419049)

New piano piece from Purple Rhapsody (that's me in case you didn't know!)

"Turmoil" is a response to The Piano Cloud's "From A Small Idea" challenge in which a short series of notes are to be turned into a complete piece of music....

It's been a while since I posted on here... but here's an update. I'm currently making a track available for free download every week for 13 weeks. I can't decide what to make available for the coming week so I'd like your help... please tell me if there's any of my tracks you'd love to have available as a free download!

You can listen to my whole catalogue at http://purplerhapsody.co.uk/discography.html

New piano piece I've been working on for the last couple of weeks - I decided to use it as a test of my new Echo Gina 3G audio interface that I got for Christmas. So, I recorded the notes in as MIDI, and then played the MIDI back through my Yamaha Clavinova, and recorded the audio from my Clavinova at the same time. After that, I exported it all to WAV and uploaded it... and here it is!

Help! Suffering a crisis of faith in my music here...! This is my first attempt at the first two minutes of my next album - it's not mixed or mastered and already I can hear things I'll change... but please please please could you listen to it and tell me what you think?

Ideas for improvement are most welcome!

(PS: Sorry it ends abruptly!)

My wife and I were looking for somewhere to have a light lunch on the monthly "Treacle Market" day. My wife has a restricted diet and a baked potato was the only thing on the menu that she could have. When we asked for a table we were told that they were really busy and that even though there were tables available we wouldn't be served for about 10 minutes. That was fine with us and so we were seated, the waitress gave us menus, told us about the specials, and then went away to deal with other customers. After about 10 minutes an elderly member of staff (he acted like he was the owner so perhaps he was) came over to take our order and when my wife said she wanted a baked potato he quite abruptly told us that they "don't do" baked potatoes on Treacle Market days. When we said that my wife was on a restricted diet and that the reason we were there was because their menu had them on he was completely unsympathetic. Just reiterated that they're too busy to do them on Treacle Market days. I tried to suggest to him that this could have been mentioned earlier but he seemed to be very grumpy (probably because they were so busy) and just disappeared. This obviously made me feel quite disgruntled - and so once my wife and I had put on our coats, gathered our bags, and were heading out the front door I was grumbling to her about how ridiculous it was that if they regularly don't do something from the menu on market days that there was no indication nor had we been told when being seated. I didn't realise that I was in earshot of the gentleman that had been abrupt with us just a few minutes before and he asked me "what's ridiculous?" and when I turned around and started to explain that he should inform customers with a sign or when they're sat down or at least with anything he didn't let me finish... he just interrupted me and told me to "vacate the premises". I tried to carry on the conversation but he ignored me and disappeared back inside. I have never been treated so rudely by someone in a café or restaurant and I find it hard to believe that he is in a customer facing role with his lack of manners (in fact downright rudeness) and his cafe's obvious disregard for keeping customers informed. Surely if they had time to point out the specials menu they had time to tell us about things that were not on the menu? And the customer friendly response to someone being on a restricted diet would be asking my wife what her dietary restrictions are in order to consider if an alternative menu choice would suit.
