Sit. Feel. Breathe. Improvise.

This is the process, or at least my process as I create and record what feels like the expressions of my heart, transformed into notes that you can hear and emotion you can feel.

The somatic experience is also present – so present. Portions of the body light up. But the beauty of observing the somatic experience for me, takes place most AFTER I have recorded.

Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Alphonse de Lamartine

I sit and listen back to this improvisation, and my heart space lights up. Movement in the chest. Presence in my ears. Arms heavy. Legs and hips heavy. Then movement behind the eyes. There is something so moving about it all.

I feel the wonder of the night sky as I look at the cover art by Luke Stackpoole via Unsplash. I am swept away into the sound of the keys at the piano, the space in my heart that feels this process so deeply. Grateful. Incredibly grateful.

And so, here it is: Improvisation I, straight from YouTube. If you’d like to hear more, I’d like to invite you to check out more of my music by looking up Miriam Jameson on Spotify. I greatly appreciate your support!


If we haven’t met yet, it’s so lovely to meet you virtually.
