Stillness | Peaceful Instrumental Piano [Episode 218, March 28, 2020]

“Stillness” – Piano Instrumental Music for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, Relaxation, Mindfulness, and Rest

Today’s piano instrumental improvisation is called “Stillness”. It’s in the key of A minor and has a beautiful, slow, deliberate feel that is perfect for your personal times of prayer, meditation, mindfulness, or relaxation. I recorded this early on Saturday morning, March 28th after waking up early and having my personal quiet time and coffee.

When I begin recording these interludes I’m never quite sure where they will take me. I usually find a key that feels right and make a decision on whether or not I will include any additional instrument layers or if I will just record solo piano. This morning I chose to record with a soft tonic pad with the A and E string droning throughout the piece. All other synths and pads were muted except for the shimmering effect that lingers throughout the piece.

After recording I decided to feature the piano more prominently so I mixed the tonic pad a bit lower so you can really enjoy the ambience of the Yamaha CFX grand piano shining through.

As I write this, we are still in an epic battle against the corona virus that has caused many to be sick and even pass away. A large percentage of our country is essentially on lock down, staying at home so as to not spread the disease. With these situations comes plenty of opportunities to be tired, stressed, worried, or fearful.

It’s my hope and prayer that these interludes give you a respite – a pause or break, in the midst of the chaos.

Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and enjoy this interlude.

Grace and peace,
Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer
