Watch a New Video for “You Smiled Because You Knew”

Today, I’m releasing a new video for my instrumental piece, “You Smiled Because You Knew.”

You may remember my recent blog post about the importance of its title. And how it’s the most listened-to piece of music I’ve made so far (but only because of it’s title).

I filmed this video from a plane, while departing from New York’s LaGuardia airport back in June. It was a beautifully clear Saturday morning as I took off en route to Atlanta, GA. I think the music pairs really nicely with the feeling of becoming airborne and the beautiful view of Manhattan looking south. You see all of Central Park, the bridges that connect Queens and the Bronx, and finishes as the plane crosses over the Hudson River into New Jersey.

Check out the video below.

You may remember my composition and experiment – writing, performing, and recording a piece of music entirely on an iPad. The piece is called “You Smiled Because You Knew.”

In the spirit of experimentation, I’ve decided to change the copyright license to be less restrictive by using a Creative Commons license. Instead of the standard “all rights reserved,” you are now free to share it, remix it, make derivative works based on it, and even use it commerically.
