Mister Guzzetti:
Italian pianist
And sound designer.

When he was a kid
He saw Kraftwerk on TV
And his mind was blown.

His own work reflects
A blend of electronic
And classical styles.

This song may be short
But like a haiku it proves
Beauty can be brief.

What makes this a beautiful song:

1. Arpeggiation.

2. Lots of space between the notes.

3. The sustain pedal.

Recommended listening activity:

Watching a tree branch
That waves ‘hello’ with the breeze
And waving right back.
