Spontaneous Piano Performance: A Visit with Michael Maricle

I recently visited my friend Michael Maricle who is a very talented musician. We shared tea and had a conversation and then he sat down and made up a song on the spot. He created a memorizing piece of music from nothing and played for 22 minutes. Luckily I was there to experience this and capture it.

I'm on a road trip from Santa Fe to the Bay Area in Northern California. Along the way, I visited my brother and his family in Palm Springs. I took the opportunity to play around with my camera and drone while everyone was spending time in the pool. Edited the footage into a quick video.
