Summer 78 — Yann Tiersen

6 02 2012

Perhaps Fifth Avenue Cinemas does in fact have good taste in music.  I heard this playing in our lobby the other day, and was very surprised to recognize it.  It’s an instrumental piece, written by Yann Tiersen, from the Goodbye Lenin! soundtrack, one of my favourite pieces from the film.  I hadn’t heard it in ages, and after listening to it a few times that day, it really inspired me to pursue writing piano pieces again, since I’ve been unable to write songs to pour out my feelings.  I’ve always been able to write just piano songs with less difficulty, probably since it only requires the piano and no words (and I am very particular about lyrics).

Maybe I’ll get to writing next week, during my week off from school.  I feel like I need it.
