pianisimo, lentamente, forte, staccato = mah jong music

Music is everywhere....everyday sounds create a symphony. One night while playing mah jong I was struck by the constant staccato sound of the tiles and the soft whooshing of "washing the tiles". The tempo of the tiles changed but the refrain of the "washing" was the same.


  1. what an interesting approach. I love the symmetry of the piece.

  2. mother loved this game. I gave her set to a cousin who wanted to learn.
    Often wish I'd kept it for making art.
    Your "set" is terrific.
    Mom would have liked it too.

  3. Great idea -- and I love the red background. Very striking. Isn't it interesting how we all hear music in so many different ways?
