All the music in this story, by the way, comes from Moon Whale, the debut piano solo album of Canadian composer Keven St. Ours. Keven is 29, and lives in Quebec. He spent the last three years recording his first piano album and at the moment is trying to figure out how to get people to listen to it. “He’s working mostly by himself,” Keven’s girlfriend Sarah told me. “He’s using mostly YouTube and Soundcloud for people to hear what he’s doing. Each time he has a new piece, he’s putting it on the web.”Another thing Keven has been doing – he’s been sending public radio reporters links to his music and asking them to make use of it.

I so loved the music that I went to iTunes and bought the album. I find it very, very beautiful.
Here is one of the pieces. No video, just the pure music.
