BROKEN PIANIST - AN APPLE GARAGEBAND COMPOSITION

So how does a composer play the piano when it's one floor up and they're stuck in bed with a broken hip? (i.e. me!).

Easy! Fire up your Mac and launch Garageband, Apple's music-making program. It has the ideal feature for broken pianists, called "musical typing".

Essentially, it allows you to play your computer's keyboard like a piano. I loaded up a celesta sound and composed & performed the track "Broken Pianist". Check it out & tell me what you think!
