Sad Song

I was watching the clear blue sky when I started to wonder what the world would be like without colour. I don’t know as I’m not colour blind, but I found it hard to imagine what it would be like to live in a world with the beauty of colour removed. With that thought in mind, I composed this song which contrasts variety with monotony, as I imagine the world must look like to a colour blind person. I composed this song when I was 8 years old.

Wpatrywalem sie w blekitne czyste niebo i zaczalem zastanawiac sie, jak wygladalby swiat bez kolorow. Trudno mi to powiedziec, bo nie jestem daltonista, ale tez nielatwo mi wyobrazic sobie jak wygladaloby zycie w swiecie pozbawionym kolorow. Z tymi myslali w glowie skomponowalem ten utwor, ktory kontrastuje roznorodnosc z monotonia, tak jak wyobrazalem sobie, ze swiat musi wygladac dla kogos, kto nie odroznia kolorow. Skomponowalem ten kawalek kiedy mialem 8 lat.

Sad Song is a melody in A-B-A form and is in the key of A minor. The lyric melody played by the right hand represents the variety of creatures and things in the world while the monotone left hand accompaniment represents a world without colour. Together these contrasting elements coexist and provide balance to each other.

This song was a bit of an experiment for me but overall I’m pleased with how it turned out. What do you think? Please leave a comment with your thoughts.

Sad Song (Smutna Piosenka) jest utworem o formie A-B-A i kluczu a-mol. Lyriczna melodia grana przez prawa reke obrazuje roznorodnosc istot i rzeczy w swiecie, podczas gdy jednostajnosc akompaniamentu lewej reki przedstawia swiat bez kolorow. Razem te przeciwienstwa wspolistnieja i obopolnie sie rownowaza.

Ten utwor byl takim malym eksperymentem dla mnie, ale ogolnie jestem zadowolony z koncowego efektu. A co Ty o tym myslisz? Prosze podziel sie swoimi refleksjami.
