Thoughts at 4 AM

Here’s a little gem of a piece that my dear friend Todd Harper (of Keys Please fame) gave me as a present for my 25th birthday. Naturally this charmed my socks off. So tonight, with my socks back on (no shoes, though, as usual at the piano), I recorded it to share with you. He has it marked “really quiet,” with “really” underlined twice, so in addition to playing it that way, I kept this recording mastered a bit low.

Thoughts at 4 AM

What? Oh, yes, of course I recorded it at 4 AM! Well, actually it was more like ten after, but I think that still counts in the poetic sense we’re talking about here.



Hey Paul!
thanks for the performing of it! Do you want to put it on our KEYS PLEASE program? I have to write you another one or two to make it a thing.
