Snowfall (solo piano)

“Snowfall” is a piece I wrote a couple of years ago shortly after a rare Georgia snowstorm left area residents bewildered (all of them), delighted (most of them), and annoyed (a few of them). I thought about what it might be like for someone to be separated from a loved one by such an event, pictured the long and perhaps frustrating trek back home, then sat down at the piano and worked it out. I thought it appropriate for my friends around Boston and points north, who have probably had enough of snow by now. Enjoy!

From the album Double Helix. “Snowfall” composed and recorded by Robert W. Oliver. Music copyright (c) 2011 by Robert W. Oliver. All rights reserved. Stock photographs via

Technical stuff: Recorded on a Zoom H4n handheld recorder, because it was new at the time, and I just had to try it out. Mixed on a Yamaha AW4416 DAW. Mastered on an Alesis Masterlink.

  1. That’s beautiful, Robert. Soothing for the soul. And it would be under any weather conditions. Thank you for sharing this.

  2. There are so many words that could potentially describe what was evoked in me when I listened to your music while watching the slide show. “Beautiful” is a very full word and I hope you can truly appreciate all that is in it. I once saw this – beautiful = be you ’til full. What a lovely expression of your heart!
