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.

Here is a poem I wrote when I was in 10th standard.

A FRIEND IS A MUST

Friendship's the wine of life - says Young Edward.
The bible states - A faithful friend is the medicine of life.
I can dare to say, a friend is the nicest reward,
In fact a medicine you should have far and wide.
A friend cleanses your dirtiest dust
And so I say - A friend is a must.

If there is not a friend to name,
If there is not a person to help;
You are a candle without a flame,
A person who can't ever see himself.
A friend is one you truly trust
And so I say - A friend is a must.

To live a life in high spirits,
You need a friend far and near.
To illume your minikin merits
You need a friend very dear.
A friend never lets rights rust
And so I say - A friend is a must.

A person who judges you very right,
In your life who makes amend,
A person who serves as your guide,
Such a person is your friend.
A friend is with you in the biggest bust
And so I say - A friend is a must.

A friend is a person who is almost a mother,
Who can play the role of a father as well,
Who never lets you get into hot water,
Who is always there in your boat to sail.
A friend searches you in the greatest gust
And so I say - A friend is a must.

To have a friend is a vast plus
And so I say - A friend is a must.
To be deprived of it is the worst curse
And so I say - A friend is a must.
A friend is a must, a friend is a must.
I repeat - a friend is a must.
