A simple haunting piece of music that gave me a moment of silence to remember.

Thanks Rich for the music and the reminder ‘never forget’

What's on the black keys?

Here's my 9/11 piece written after the 15th anniversary of the event.

Nice piece! Thanks for sharing. Even the dusty keys seem appropriate.

Thanks Steve
My contribution is not my own composition but Samuel Barber’s ‘Adagio for Strings’ transposed below as a piano solo. Always reminds me of 9/11

Beautiful composition - introspective and emotional without being extremely sad. I lived in New York when this terror attack occurred. I was directly affected because of the line of work I was in and that I lost fellow Officers, as well as friends as a result. I remember not wanting to listen to music - I have the habit of associating music with events, with almost everything in my life. I didn't want to not be able to hear a piece of music, a song because it made me sad. The only music I did listen to was the special held in memorian on tv. I remember, as I will always remember this day, watching the late Tom Petty glare without blinking into the camera as he performed a solo rendition of - I won't back down-

It is since eighteen years and our lives have moved on. People say - Never Forget- and I could not even imagine forgetting this day. Lets remember in Peace, Calm, Stillness and Love.

Looks like dust. There's less of it where the fingers have touched the keys. I wonder if it's intentional, given the debris that rained down as the towers collapsed.

Nice composition, giving us time to reflect and to remember - although we will never forget.

Thanks, Rich

Music Me,

I am not a New Yorker, you know that. But much of my family are either in New York, or around it.

I, fortunately, did not know anyone personally who died that day, but I have many family members who did. I have an uncle (now deceased) and a cousin who have had careers as iron workers. My uncle spent lots of time there building the towers. My cousin spent lots of time there after the disaster cleaning up and recovering remains.

If you enlarge the video you can see dust flying around in the air. It was definitely intentional. Not sure I like it though... but we should never forget.
