Brother and sister Milo (10) and Fia (8) have been learning to play their family’s beautiful (albeit untuned) old upright piano.

Milo’s piece, “Alien Planet” was composed on the upright. He decided to record it electronically, using keyboard and synth midi effects to provide the full alien planet experience. He wrote the lyrics and recruited sister (Fia) to sing (or quietly yell).

Fia wrote and recorded her piece (Bob Dylan the Dinosaur) on the upright piano, requesting my help to play some piano parts in recording. She chose to use a lot of minor chords, which added to the ethereal and slightly eerie feel of the song. I love the imagery the song evokes…

While creating their CD covers, Milo politely suggested that Fia’s dinosaur looked like a llama. Fia wasn’t quite sure how to take it, but full credit to her – the world is definitely a better place now that there are llamasaurs roaming our daydreams.
