Twinkle twinkle little star is a short musical piece I composed and recorded last evening.

This piece consists of 56 measures. It is 1 minute 52 seconds long. The music is composed of four tracks. This is my second attempt at recording music with multiple tracks. The last such attempt was more than two years ago when I composed and recorded 'A few notes'.

The links to the audio files, sheet music, etc. are provided below. The files reside in my website. In case, my website is down, the YouTube link provided below should still work.

The four tracks in this piece are:

  1. Grand piano
  2. Slow strings
  3. Xenon pad
  4. Music box

This arrangement is based on the popular melody of the nursery rhyme called Twinkle, twinkle, little star. The melody is played with the treble notes of the piano. I wrote the bass notes for the piano and the strings, and the high notes for the pad and the music box to fill the music with emotions of love and happiness. I recorded this after about two hours of practice.

For so long, I have been wishing "Happy Pi PM" to my friends and colleagues at 3:14 PM. However, this doesn't seem to be appropriate since 3:14 PM is not really 3.14 PM. In fact, 3:14 PM is 31460 PM which when expressed in decimal representation turns out to be 3.23333 PM, accurate up to 5 decimal places.

The value of π accurate up to 5 decimal places is 3.14159. Now, .14159 hour = 509.724 seconds ≈ 8 minutes and 30 seconds, or 8½ minutes.

So, π PM turns out be 3:08:30 PM or 8½ minutes past 3 PM.
