Listen to RHODODENDRONED
I recall a very grey, uneventful day by a lake surrounded by Rhododendrons, suddenly, the sun came out and the entire scene was truly transformed. It was one of those moments, for a few precious minutes this was spectacular - glorious pinks and greens, and I was the only person there. This painting grasps at the feeling, likewise the music has an elation that does its best to emerge from the grey. Yet no matter how pleased I may be with the finished piece, this is one of those occasions when the title, and the memory will always be the best.
RHODODENDRONED. Written and performed by William Neal. Instruments; Piano, Roland G800 Workstation.
WILLIAM NEAL does not read music, has an obscure sense of timing, and is prone to playing the wrong note twice, to make it sound intentionaL He played in a blues band in the 1960s, and after learning 3 chords wanted to turn professional. During the 1970s he played with Don Hooley, and although he arrived late at the wrong venue, they remained on very good speaking terms. After many years of absence from the music scene, Marginal Movements sees him playing the piano once more with the enthusiasm of a three year old. The Harmonica is really his forte - sadly there are no harmonica parts in Marginal Movements.
