ShiroKuro,

> not "simple," which makes it extremely
> satisfying to play.

Thank you. I've always felt that the most important element in any good song is the melody. That's the part people remember right? It's the part that sticks in your head hours after you've heard a tune.

So getting more and more technical doesn't mean it's a better song. Sometimes the simplest songs are the best songs.

To be honest, I don't consider myself an especially advanced pianist. I'm just a good songwriter. I write tunes that I like, and then arrange them in ways that I find interesting.

So it's not always about complexity, it's about simplicity, and whether the "tune" stays with you after you've heard the song.

I think it's great that piano players who aren't all that advanced can play my music without too much trouble. I find that very satisfying, because when a person can play a song they love it encourages them to keep playing and practicing.

Piano music should be fun. smile

Yea, it's been a LONG time, hasn't it. I started online in 1995. It's interesting to see how my Internet marketing business model has changed over the years. I've had to do it to survive.

I'm glad to see you're still going strong with PianoWorld. And it was really cool to stumble across this thread in the forum. I guess it means you're doing something right, in terms of marketing, when people are talking about you!

David, I'm new here, but I took the time to listen to your music and it's really, really nice. I'll try to play some in the near future for sure.

You're right! Some of the most simple music can sound so beautiful when it's played with emotion.

Keep plucking away!

Dagnabit! You go saying things like that; now I'm going to have to drive down to Portland for that Whisperings thingmajiggie. Any professional who feels that way is worth checking out in person. thumb

I am listening to your music while I am typing this and I feel like I am floating through the clouds!
Your music is just beautiful! I am new to your music and now I just want to listen to more and more of it!
Do you mind if I ask you what kind of piano you are playing on? The tone on the cd is just so perfect!

Now, isn't this forum something! You can even meet your favorite composer here! Welcome David from the other side of the ocean.

I am utterly impressed and can't get the image of Mozart popping up here out of my head eek


In love with life

Hey Bob, thanks for calling today and getting tickets for the Whisperings show in Portland. You'll enjoy it. Jace Vek is performing as our show closer and he's one of my personal favorites. I'm a big fan of his music.

We'll see you there.

Thank you. It depends on the album, but MOST of my CDs are recorded on a Yamaha 7' grand. Actually, the only ones that aren't are "The Vigil" and "The Last Waking Moment." Those two were both recorded on a 9' Steinway.

Hello, David! I'm new here too, but I really love your music. Right now, the only CD I have is, "While The Trees Sleep."

Ethereal... Just incredible. smile

It is wonderful to see an artist like David Nevue so personable and be personally involved with his fans/audience. It is very rare to see. wink

I think this captures completely why I love new age music, more so than classical music. It's hard to define "new age" (though I'd love to hear your definition, David!), but I think one of its hallmarks is strong melody. Much if not most classical music is far more demanding and complex technically than (most) new age music, but I can listen to a piece by Bach, say, and not be able to hum it 5 minutes later. I want to play the music that stays with you. smile
