New piano piece: 123 Miles Away

I wrote this piece last spring. Please excuse the poor-quality recording; my computer has a limited microphone and my piano is pretty bad. By the way, I should say why I've posted this as a video.

Once upon a time, there was a young maiden who was way more comfortable with the kind of keyboard that has a damper pedal attached than she was with the kind that has a backspace key. She could not figure out how to upload an mp3 file to her blog, and so instead of figuring out how, she decided that the easiest way to get said piece onto said blog was to create a video, which she did know how to upload.

After some trial and error, she figured out how to use her video creating software, and the result you see before you. The pictures have no significance whatsoever; they are only there to make it possible for the music to be in a video. Some of them I took at Philmont Scout Ranch, some are memes from the internet, and one is an old biology assignment. 

Please enjoy the music. If you have any suggestions for me (I'm an amateur composer), please let me know. I'd love some feedback :)

(By the way, this is mine. Please don't be horrible and steal my work. If you do, I might send my attack rabbit--pictured in the video-- to come chew your couch).


  1. Ahhh Maddie your composition is amazing! Great job!!!!! :D
    But... um... about your last picture. STAAAHHHHPPPP!!!! WALRUS = DANGER!!!!!!!!!!!! D: D: D: bad maddie. you make elli scarwed.

    1. It's not going to be able to sit on you from inside the computer screen...

  2. Let me say on this old post- I've spent all afternoon writing a piano piece, while babysitting my brother(who wasn't very helpful in the creative process). Then I played this for him, and he thought it was awesome(he was totally rocking out to it). Then I told him you wrote it and he just stared. ;)

    1. Aw, thanks! LOL, I can picture that look on his face! XD And I'd love to hear yours sometime, if you'd care to share it :)


Let me know what you think about whatever it is I've just posted. Be nice. This includes not using unwarranted, unnecessary, and unneeded apostrophes.
