Quiet Time | Instrumental Music [Episode 173, August 98, 2019]

“QuietTime” – Instrumental Music Soundtrack for Prayer, Meditation, and Relaxation by Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer

Episode 173 of the Worship Interludes Podcast is called “Quiet Time”. This peaceful instrumental departs from the solo piano improvisations. The composition adds layers of lush pads and sound effects to provide a sonic base for the sparse piano melodies that are sprinkled throughout the piece.

The majority of episodes of the podcast are solo piano only but I absolutely love creating these unique compositions with the additional layers of soundscapes. I recently purchased an arsenal of sounds from Sunday Sounds which give me a pallet of sounds that I’ve not had access to before.

As you listen, take time to focus on slowing down and breathing intentionally. Pray with gratitude. Meditate on what is good and noble. Relax and allow yourself eleven minutes to step away from the anxious, stress-filled cares of the world.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this episode.

Relaxed | Piano Instrumental Interlude [Episode 172, August 2, 2019]

“Relaxed” – A Soothing Piano Instrumental for Relaxation, Mediation, and Prayer

Today’s interlude is called “Relaxed”. Let’s be honest. When you produce two compositions per week, it’s tough to come up with names! Many times I have an idea for the title as I’m playing. Often, the title is inspired by a Scripture or something that I’ve sensed in my personal quiet times of prayer. As I listened to today’s interlude, I just felt refreshed and relaxed.

This interlude has a bit more of a jazzy feel – not in speed but in the chord changes. It’s relaxed and enjoyable.

May times of refreshing pour over you as you listen today.
