Old action

By Nicholas Hooper

The old action mutts and churns as it makes its thick, gentle sound.
A hundred years of springs wearing and still it sends its message on old felts
to the old strings above: Warm, glorious, jangly, telling tales of past romantic music.



About Dawnings:
“Every morning at around 5am I get up and go down to my studio. After a short meditation I write down whatever is in my head, giving myself fifteen minutes to do so. Then moving over to the piano (or a more portable instrument like my Ukulele when I'm away), I improvise and record a piece of music inspired by whatever words I just wrote. It is a great way of keeping both my writing and my composing going and I call these small creations Dawnings. They are mostly unedited, like sketches, so that they keep that fresh feeling of an early morning discovery.”
