Hello all,

I've not posted anything for quite a while but the other day, sat at the piano, this happened!

Well, sort of.........It took a few days editing and moulding into shape but I'm pleased with where it is now even though it's quite short and I may want to expand it or encorporate it into something else at a later date.

Ninlil is the Mesopotamian Goddess of the winds.  She is the wife of Enlil, the father of the Gods and her domain is the sky.

This is her in one of her more gentle moods.......mostly!

Hope you like it.


Nice! Reminded me a little of Keith Jarrett in places... and in the improvisatory quality of much of it.


Thank you Krummholz, I really appreciate it.  I might have to have a listen to some Keith Jarrett, I've not had the pleasure thus far.

Kind regards


Hello all,

Many thanks to those who have taken time to listen and more so to those who have taken time to comment, I really do appreciate it.

Ninlil has had a custody battle recently with La Dama de Murmumendi - La Dama won.

When I wrote 'Ninlil', it was with the idea of it just being a stand alone piece but then later came 'Elurra'.  My idea developed and now I'm in the middle of writting a suite of short (sudo impressionistic) piano pieces with weather as the running theme.

La Dama de Murmumendi is an ancient Basque Godess credited with ruling over the ever changing, sometimes unpredictable and often temperamental weather.  Generally she is quite gentle but can change on the spot depending on her mood.

Ninlil, now called 'Brisa' is the Basque word for The Wind.  It's one of the pieces, along with 'Elurra' the Basque word for The Snow, that will be part of the suite 'La Dama de Murmumendi'.  I am currently working of 2 more short pieces to represent the fog and also one for the rain, or more closely a summer storm.

Brisa is essentially the same piece as Ninlil, but I have revised, refined and remastered it.  I'm reasonable sure that this is it's final incarnation and so here is the link to the new version.

Hope you like it.


I liked it!  Thought it felt floaty and dreamy at the same time.


Thank you relm1 I really appreciate it ☺️


I already commented (on another forum) on the first incarnation and find there is something both refreshing and curiously touching about this piece, esp. from around 2'12". The same goes for Elurra. Mostly I don't go for such dense music which on the surface seems largely decorative but there is something both individual, bracing and yet also a haunting about your art which is curiously compelling.
