A new Music section
Wednesday, October 22, 2003 | Permalink

As you may have noticed there's a new item on the menu to the left. It's pointing the new Music section I have just created. Being bored the other day I figured it would be cool to publish some music on my site. After all, I do play the piano and it has been a hobby since long ago. I'm not the world's greatest piano player, but at least good enough to justify that I put up a few songs on my own site.
I recorded these tunes played on a keyboard. I really wish I owned a grand piano though; sounds better and responds better, but I suppose this is good enough for the less fastidious.

Please tell me what you think (and be honest )

You are skilled with music as well as with graphics humus. Although it isn't my kind of music it is played very well.

Recorded on a keyboard? A real piano sounds so much better than a keyboard (and is easier to play, too, IMHO). If you play a keyboard this well, I can only imagine what you could do with a grand piano. Very impressive!

Thanks for your comment. Nice to know it's appreciated by some at least.
Yeah, a grand piano really makes a whole lot of difference. Down at university there's a grand piano standing in a large open area. I often go there at nights after having studied and play for a while. It's really a whole different world compared to a keyboard. If I had some real portable recording equipment I would try to record something on the grand piano some time.

I don't have much experience with music, but isn't it possible to record to a midi file with your keyboard? You can then apply some cool wavetable and EAX effects and render your midi as a new wave. (BTW, nice name chickensoup :-)

Yes, my keyboard is midi-compatible, but the midi-sounds aren't quite as rich as the other sounds, and I would need a special cable to connect it to my soundcard too.

Love can sometimes be like a grand piano. Each new note more beautiful than the last.
